Last week I went to Mallorca. Mallorca is my favourite island, along with River Island and Fernando's. I went there last year, or at least around it, for a disastrous sailing trip. This time we stayed very much on land - specifically in a villa near Pollença.
I went with 5 friends.
And whilst they all read and bathed and chatted and lolled I sat away from the group in the shadows, drawing. I did a little spread for each day, look:
My day job is being a designer at Walker Books. There I work on covers, mainly, for the Fiction list. Last year I designed a cover for Daylight Saving by Edward Hogan. More recently I wrote a process-post for our Undercover blog detailing how I went about it - including a bit with tins of chickpeas in a bath.
As part of the process I also made an interactive digital cover for use online which may or may not be the first ever such cover. Peopleseemedtolike it, which was nice.
