Trickster Poster Illustration

A few months ago I was working on a drawing for storyteller Dominic Kelly and his
new multi-layered storytelling show 'Trickster'. Below is a process post for the image.

Concepts


I spoke with Dominic on Skype and he sent me a video of a scratch night where he had told his Trickster work in progress to a small audience. From that the first concept images were drawn, digitally, it was the mood I was in at the time. Dominic's story is of a character who lies and cheats his way around England and Scotland at the start of the 20th Century and has elements based on Percy Topliss "The Monocled Mutineer". The show is much more than that and involves a lot of elements of the historic and mythical that can only work in a room with a great storyteller in control.

Radiator Comfort


One of the stories I am illustrating for the Communities in Time book involves a young lad coming to the country in the late seventies and being shocked by a British winter. Something we can all relate at the moment with the severe weather we are experiencing at the moment. Comfort in radiators and comics, you can't go wrong.
