I'm really pleased to be part of this group show at Stolenspace gallery London. The brief was to create an original artwork to the traditional format and size of a Penguin book for a novel of my choice. I of course chose Arthur Conan Doyle's 'The Lost World'. I did a neat little pencil drawing of a dinosaur made up of London's Natural History Museum.
Here's more info on the show, private view and the list of great artists involved -

The age old proverb is easier said than done, when choosing a read who can't be swayed by good cover art
the cover after all has the job of explaining thousands of words in an instant.
StolenSpace in association with Penguin Books plan to celebrate the art of the book cover
with a show entitled ' Never Judge?’
For this exhibition we will be filling the gallery with original book covers exclusively created for this show
by our favourite artists from around the world, there will also by gyclée prints available from some of the pieces
created. The show promises to be a visual feast working in conjunction with Penguin Books and their upcoming
Penguin Essentials project

Beetle - I don't draw traditionally very often these days, but it's nice to dust the pencils off once in a while! More art soon.
