Skylarking About

Here's a change of pace from the slicker 3d approach with a painterly publishing illustration for the paperback cover of Karen Gregory's Skylarks released tomorrow by Bloomsbury. The brief was to loosely capture the feel of two skylarks playing freely in the sky symbolising the relationship at the heart of the young adult novel. A really enjoyable commission, experimenting with textures and good ol' fashioned scanned-in mark making, and great cover design by Andrea Kearney. You can see it on the site with similar work here.
