A fair few months I spied an exciting opportunity of providing illustrations towards a book called ‘Writers For Animals’, which is a collective of animal based stories.
The brief was to provide A5 sized illustrations in black and white tones.
All I had to do was to pick which stories I wish to illustrate!
First up, being a fish keeping and scuba diving enthusiast, it was very easy to pick a story that was based around fishing being cruel.
My second illustration that was published was for a story called ‘King Kong’ in which the titular character was actually a dog. So to play on the words, I thought it would be cool if the owner was actually taking the gorilla King Kong for a walk!!
I received the following testimonial from Jenny Elliott-Bennett, the Commissioning Editor:
“Edd produced highly original art work for the book Writers for Animals, and did so to an incredibly tight deadline. I found his attitude at once both professional and very approachable; we communicated via email from opposite sides of the world and the relationship was very easy. Edd worked within my general guidelines but very little real instruction, and yet managed to create images that were perfect for my publication. I was thrilled with what he came up with.”
