Heart of Darkness

Back in January I submitted my entry for the Book Illustration Competition run by the House of Illustration and the Folio Society. This years book was the 'Heart of Darkness' by Joseph Conrad. We were asked to complete a binding design and three internal illustrations. Each illustration was completed in Pen & Ink and coloured in Photoshop.

 ‘Black shapes crouched, lay, sat between the trees leaning against the trunks, clinging to the earth, half coming out, half effaced within the dim light…’

‘Sticks, little sticks, were flying about—thick: they were whizzing before my nose, dropping below me, striking behind me against my pilot-house.’

‘His covering had fallen off, and his body emerged from it pitiful and appalling as from a winding-sheet.’


‘I am lying here in the dark waiting for death.’
