Wenceslas A Christmas Poem by Carol Ann Duffy

Wenceslas A Christmas Poem by Carol Ann Duffy

Running with the medieval theme creeping into my personal work, I was offered the chance to work with Picador, an imprint of Pan Macmillan, on their latest instalment of an on going series of small 32-page Xmas themed gift books written by Poet Laurette, Carol Ann Duffy. "Wenceslas" is Duffy's retelling of the famous Christmas Carol. The only snag being that I had to produce the artwork in two and a half weeks. Cover, 16 images and 5 double page spreads.
