A Biography of Story
Posted 5 years ago and submitted by Graeme Neil Reid | Share link: http://illo.cc/73573

I was commissioned by author Trish Nicholson to create some illustrations for her interesting and most enjoyable book A Biography of Story, A Brief History of Humanity. Having originally intended to create these in pencil, I couldn’t help but be drawn into the images I was asked to create, and knew they would be better served as watercolour paintings albeit in monochrome. I’m particularly pleased with how these turned out and feel it is an approach I’d like to try again.

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.
