ARCHITECTS : HOLY HELL
Album cover and inlay artwork, and for animated backdrop for live gigs on the Holy Hell tour.
Here's the final album artwork and several pictures I made at the time in the same vein, to be used throughout the album and CD inlays,
for merch and for the onstage cinema screen animations. (Stage animations by Duckeye).

ROYAL BLOOD : ROYAL BLOOD
I was approached by Royal Blood in 2014 to make a new piece of work for their debut album cover, and I made Crown. Although Mike and Ben liked the piece they decided they wanted to use the already existing Pachamama. This became the cover for their eponymous no.1 debut album, and also served as the backdrop for live gigs.
When Emma Rice became the new director of Shakepeare's Globe Theatre in London in 2017 she asked to use my work for the first year's Wonder theme, which I jumped at. As well as theming the posters and brochure for the year, my work also featured in the foyer, up the columns and hanging from the walls.
THE FOLIO SOCIETY : THE CALL OF CTHULHU & OTHER WEIRD STORIES by H.P. LOVECRAFT
I made the images for, and co-designed, The Call of Chutlhu and Other Weird Stories with The Folio Society in 2017. I made seven original images for this, including the frontispiece, as well as making the endpapers and covers for the book and solander box of the limited edition and the cover of the collector's edition. The limited edition (limited to 750 copies) also featured an exclusive signed and numbered print, as below.

THE FOLIO SOCIETY : STEPPENWOLF by HERMANN HESSE
I also made some art work for Hermann Hesse's Steppenwolfwith Folio. Hesse is one of my all-time favourite writers, so this was especially sweet to work on. As usual The Folio Society came through with the details. The life-changing leaflet, On Steppenwolf: A Tract, detailing Harry's life, his nature and his predicament, handed to him in the street, is embedded in the main body of the book.
