Illustrations for David Chappell's forth coming ebook 'The Great Marquess'. David lived in the area of Wakefield where I now live and contacted me asking if I would be interested in illustrating his book. I said yes because after spending so long working inside on the Young Waterton comic strip the thought of getting some fresh air and a bit of door step exploring appealed to me a lot.
David wanted specific scenes for his fantasy novel so it took a bit of research for Old Hall, Heath was demolished (and later) rebuilt and Sandal Castle is all but a ruin now. Chantry Chapel and Mary Bolles Water Tower are still standing so they were fairly easy to photograph for reference.
