It’s Publication Day for ‘The Pet and the Pendulum’!

It’s publication day for the final installment in ‘The Misadventures of Edgar and Allan Poe’ by Gordon McAlpine, with illustrations by me.

It’s been hard to believe it’s been over three years since the series first began taking shape, but with a dastardly trap, the truth about ghosts, a dinner to die for and the usual assortment of cats rats and suspicious strangers, ‘The Pet and the Pendulum’ is a fitting – not to mention explosive – finale to the series.

Not only that, but as my first illustration project it will always hold a special – slightly ghoulish – place in my heart.

Here’s a sneaky peak at the jacket design… click to enlarge.

And, just for the excuse to share it again, a video of me drawing the Poe twins. I’m going to miss those guys!

Nowhere is Now Here

The Nowhere Box is out this month in the UK and US and to mark the moment I am delighted to be able to share this snazzy trailer with you.

Thank yous to the talented Will Snow and  Nic Zuppardi, whose animation skills and musical talent respectively came together to bring the book to life so effectively. Nice work guys!
