Papa Cloaca, King of the Sewer

This is a self-initiated portfolio piece based on a character I created for a fantasy/sci-fi thing that never got the chance to be finished. He was one of my favourite characters and I had a few sketches of him from the time, but none that I felt did the character justice. That was what inspired me to revisit this old content several years on, and use the new skills I’ve developed to present him and his environment in a (hopefully) more convincing way.

I have known Ollie Ray for some time now and, indeed, he became the illustrator for three of my books after I shortlisted him from a large number of illustrators who responded to my advertising. It was a decision that I have never regretted. As you will no doubt see from his portfolio, he is an accomplished young artist who is able to adapt his styles to suit most genres. He has proved to be a highly personable young man, dedicated to his work, affable - and a stickler for deadlines too!
