Oroonoko
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Simon Carr | Share link: http://illo.cc/77880

Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be commissioned to create an illustration for a book on British literature, and specifically the story of Oroonoko by Aphra Behn. “Oroonoko is a seventeenth-century novella that tells the story of the eponymous hero, the prince and heir to the throne of the African country of Cormantien.” This was a pretty challenging illustration as there were quite a lot of story elements to include and details to get right, but it was a challenge that I really enjoyed.

Testimonial
Over the course of several series books, Simon has been an absolute pleasure to work with — he’s talented, professional, and detailed. He deftly translates entirely imagined worlds into amazing works of art that make those worlds real on the covers of our books. His talent speaks for itself in his portfolio and I would recommend him to anyone looking to work with an expert in character and scene illustration.
