The Kraken Wakes

The Kraken Wakes

The brief was to illustrate any myth or monster of our choice, in this case I chose the Kraken - a legendary sea monster of giant proportions. The brief indicated the illustrations must be set along with text and so I chose to base mine on the apocalyptic novel 'The Kraken Wakes' by John Wyndham. I was very inspired by the macabre, monochrome work of Edward Gorey. The finished piece was a 7x7" illustrated book with 20 double page spreads.
