Slugboy Saves the World – Book Illustration
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Darren Gate | Share link:

At the end of 2016 I was commissioned by Floris Books in Edinburgh to illustrate the cover and inside spreads for a super fun superhero novel, Slugboy Saves the World! The whole project was a great experience which involved drawing a large number of slugs and slimy things as well as quite a few Superheroes and Supervillians.

This is the final cover and a few of the inside spreads, too. You can find out more over at Floris Books.

Darren is an enthusiastic, committed illustrator who is a pleasure to work with. He listened closely to our brief and feedback, he was a good communicator and he created some great artwork for us. We'd be very happy to work with him again!
