My latest project published by Wayland books (Hodder and Stoughton) is soon to go on sale, and I’m pretty thrilled with how it’s turned out. The book was written by Andrew Fusek Peters (Author of “Ravenwood” and “The Glass Forest”) and tells the tale of two school friends who accidentally create a digital Frankenstein’s monster. “Bullies and the Beast” is the first book in the “Data Beast” series and will be followed up by three other books.

I was required to create exciting full colour front covers for all the books as well as a number of black and white interior images. All were created digitally using a mixture of Zbrush, Cinema 4D, and Photoshop, making the images quite 3D in appearance.

Book one should hit the shelves sometime in the next month!

Testimonial
"I CAN NOT WAIT for you to see the cover illustration (Alex did) for the next Jackson Speed novel. It is glorious. When my youngest son saw the first draft of the cover, he said, “You’re going to have to write a better book to go with that cover.”
