Having a blast from the past
Posted 12 months ago and submitted by Robert Page | Share link: http://illo.cc/90215

As a recent endeavour, I am creating something new from the old… actually from the ancient. History is something that fires my imagination and creativity, particularly the infamous era known as the Dark Ages. I want to express this fascination by using a simple, accurate, but hopefully effective method to recreate these amazing objects from photos and descriptions of the artefacts which have been recovered.

I am intending to focus these illustrations at educational textbooks, and/or exhibit illustrations, etc.

Rob was the first person I approached on my shortlist of illustrators for Hell Unearthed because his interests and experience were very much aligned with history and mythology which were perfect for Dante’s underworld. Rob’s ink drawings have really brought Hell Unearthed to life and his skill with creating light and shadow have been exceptional. He has shone a spotlight on the murky world of this fictional Hell. He has been incredibly professional and responsive throughout the project and I couldn’t have asked for more. Truly delighted.
