Shadows over Scotland portraits
Posted 11 years ago and submitted by Graeme Neil Reid | Share link:


I recently produced six portrait pictures for a gaming supplement called Shadows over Scotland for Cubicle 7’s Cthulhu Britannia game and I’ve had special permission to show you them before it see’s print. From top left we have the wonderfully mustachioed Ramsay MacDonald, then hopefully a familiar face to artists out there Charles Rennie Mackintosh. In the middle is Sir Alexander Fleming followed by Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (or as you might remember her The Queen Mother) and John Logie Baird. Lastly but not least we have Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. These were a mixture of pencil, ink, markers and photoshop.

I employed Graeme as the sole illustrator and designer on The Dangerous Book of Heroes. The quality of his work was excellent and he was great at understanding what we at HarperCollins needed, and at doing it quickly too. It was a complicated project, and the drawings needed to be historically accurate as well as engaging for the reader and Graeme was particularly good at paying attention to the details which were important to us and the author. The project was on a tight timescale and he rose to the challenge, producing everything in time and to budget, with great creativity, speed and care.
