School's Out Forever cover art, published by Abaddon Books.
The brief was to have a childs face (my niece by the way) on the cover. The publisher wanted it to convey that the story was set in a future apocolypse. They thought the original (below) was too vague and didn't translate the message very well... Looking back at this now, I agree and am much happier with the way this one came out. This was achieved using photography, textures and painting in photoshop. Yes, that is a real AK-47 (decommissioned).

Here is my latest bit of cover art for Solaris books. House of Fear, a collection of haunted house stories. due for release in the UK and US soon.
For the logo, I decided use a simple clean serif typeface (Trajan) then jumble/distress the letters to add a more 'spooky/horror' vibe. I am especially proud of the extended knife like elements in the letters H and R. Again, adding to the horror but nice and subtle. I have separated the logo out so you can have a look.
Here is the flat layout with spine and cover.

Here is my Alan Moore cover for The Complete Future Shocks published by 2000 AD comics. The idea was to create a kind of Tharg/Alan Moore hybrid. Quite pleased with how this one came out... Ive attached my workings/sketches too.
