puffin-books

Adeline Yen Mahさんの「Chinese Cinderella」の装画を描きました。イギリスのPenguin Booksという出版社から出ている「Puffin Classics」という童話のシリーズです。
自分で海外の出版社とやり取りをして描きおろすというのは初めてだったので、、指示を訳し間違えたりもして、なかなか苦労しました…。無事出版されて良かったです。
7月2日発売です(*゚v゚*)

Excited to share my recent project with Random house books illustrating the cover for their Puffin Books Series, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase. It was a great experience to work on this cover, being able to illustrate the text as well as the image. This is a draft version of the final cover, which will be in UK book stores this summer. Thanks very much AD Matt Jones for the opportunity and wonderful art direction.

“The clocks were striking midnight and the rooms were very still as a figure glided quietly from bed to bed, smoothing a coverlid here, settling a pillow there, and pausing to look long and tenderly at each unconscious face, to kiss each with lips that mutely blessed, and to pray the fervent prayers which only mothers utter.” ― Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

Happy Mother’s Day!

So I love these little editions of puffin classics. I have been after a copy of Grimm’s Fairy tales for quite some time, but my collection is now complete.

If you’re after these editions yourself you can find them here:

Boxset

Individual books: Black Beauty, The Call of the Wild,The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Wind in the Willows, The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Secret Garden, The Wizard of Oz, Anne of Green Gables,Peter Pan, Matilda, Tales of the Greek Heroes, A Little Princess. I think that’s all of them.

There is also Grimm’s Fairy Tales which is out of print and The Jungle Book which has not been released yet.
