I was going through the archive earlier, looking for something else entirely, when i came across this and thought it might be of interest.

Since 2011, i’ve been doing lots of covers for Penguin USA and their reprinting of the backlist of John Le Carre (and in the last six months they have been used in the UK too, so you can find them pretty much everywhere).

Whenever I’m working on something like this, the first stage of the project is to read the book, and then submit a bunch of sketches to see which of them stick, and that’s what I’ve got here - pretty much every sketch that got sent off for feedback. Looking back at them, there are definitely sketches I would like to finish off, and I suspect some of them will find use for something else down the line.

No real reason for posting this other than i thought some of you might be interested in the early stages of work like this, and I can’t post anything from my current projects for a little while. Hope you enjoy a peek behind the curtain!

New art coming soon.
