Peter Pan Cover Reveal

Egmont Publishing have just revealed my book cover illustration for their new Classics edition of Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie! 

This was a bit of a dream project to work on, and it's brilliant to have the go-ahead to show this to you after I've had to keep it underwraps for so long.  I'll be blogging a in depth process post at some point soon; there's some really nice prep work, roughs and alternate versions we cycled through, so it should be an interesting one!

This new edition of Peter Pan is one of the first six releases of Egmont's new Classics range.  It's definitely worth checking out the others (in particular the gorgeous A Little Princess cover by Jonathan Burton) http://www.thebookseller.com/news/egmont-reveals-first-classics-titles

They'll all be popping up in bookshops this August, so I'll keep you posted!
