When author Carole Wilkinson planned ‘Bronze Bird Tower’, the sixth book in her ‘Dragonkeeper series’, she also announced the end of the popular title. I enjoyed working on this piece, and I hope I was able to bring a non-traditional interpretation to the series as a hole (because who really does know what a dragon looks like?)
The postie has certainly been busy around my place of late – last week I received a preview copy of the latest Dragonkeeper book by Carole Wilkinson, in hardcover. Published by Black Dog / Walker Books, it is the fifth book in the series that I have illustrated the cover for.
Here is a sneak preview for the reissued editions of Carole Wilkinson’s Dragonkeeper series which will be out in May. It was an interesting project to work on, as I don’t really see myself as a “fantasy” artist – it was great to work on something that is quite foreign to me – and I think this will probably help find an even broader audience of those who don’t regard themselves as “fantasy” readers. The books, the first of which was originally published in 2003, have been a global success for Carole. I was asked to help redesign the covers late last year, after Walker Books acquired Black Dog Books (the original publisher).
