Pirates Ahoy

Last two pieces I'm posting from The Powers - a deadly pirate ship as seen through a telescope plus a catastrophic turn of events in the penultimate chapter. Click for a more detailed view. 




So that's it for the artwork for The Powers - The Not So Super Superheroes and it was really so much fun to work on. Little Island and the author Kevin Stevens have been amazing and gave me so much leeway to do what I wanted with it. I love working in black and white, something about removing the colour makes the drawing have more impact and also makes it a whole lot easier and faster. It'll be out in October so watch this space etc. 

Incidentally, if you know any 7-10 year olds, bring them along to this event at The Ark http://www.dublinwritersfestival.com/event/the-powers-workshop-with-sheena-dempsey  next Saturday. It's part of the Dublin Writer's Festival and I'll be talking about how I went about making the drawings for the book among other things.
