Cole’s Book Arcade

As part of the release/promotion of The Grandest Bookshop in the World, I created two illustrations that, in all honesty, terrified me a fair bit. The premise was brilliant: two illustrations of Cole’s Book Arcade, to go in a window display for Dymocks Sydney. In practise: I marked out, with masking tape on my wall, the actual SIZE of the posters, and then I sat down on the floor and stared at the wall for longer than was healthy. Guys, they are nearly as tall as me! I’m used to creating illustrations for books, magazines, and computer screens!

Anyway, eventually I pulled myself together, and painted these.
