Illustrations for Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl

Illustrations for Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl

I was asked to produce a series of Illustrations to accompany the short story "Lamb to the Slaughter".

With these black and white ink illustrations I hope to convey the continued sense of unease, which is a persistent theme of the story, through the use of strong lighting and unusual viewpoints.
