Kingsley Amis

It was great to work on these covers for Penguin books which are for the Modern Classics Kingsley Amis reprints. I had a very short deadline so I got into a rhythm of illustrating one cover a day over a period of a week. (There were 5 covers though one is on hold). A big thank you to Art Director Jim Stoddart.

This one is for the hardback edition of Complete Stories.

  1. I saw these the other day at Caustic Cover Critic and they blew my mind. I'd buy Complete Stories and Ending Up just to chop out the covers and frame them. ♥

  2. Very nice. I like the clever little details like the dog licking the hand and the Englishman's sagging socks.
