A Hard Day’s Fight
Posted 12 years ago and submitted by Graeme Neil Reid | Share link: http://illo.cc/6525

A couple of weeks back I was contacted by the Liverpool Roller Birds who wanted a design to promote their upcoming roller derby matches. The event itself is called ‘A Hard Day’s Fight’ and the thought of not using the design from the Beatles album ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ as a starting point seemed criminal. So having the concept approved I proceeded to illustrate all twenty members of the group all with the hallmarks of a successful roller derby.

So we have the poster with all the information for the derby and more in keeping with the original album is the T-Shirt design. I must point out that the Liverpool Roller Birds logo was supplied to me as you see it and I have no idea who designed and illustrated it for them? If you are in the area on the 13th November make sure you drop by and catch the action.

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.
