Oroonoko
Posted 2 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.

Working with Simon was wonderful. He communicated very quickly and clearly, paid amazing attention to detail, and really made sure to capture the feel we were looking for in a picture. Incredibly talented artist and overall great person.
