Now the Times Life Of Pi illustration has closed I was going to post my Life Of Pi entry until I discovered that half my artwork archive has been deleted from the studio server! The final piece wasn't too different from the original shown here - it was in dust-jacket format with a revised Orang & Hyena & the 'island' added in the background.
Here's some thumbnails that I did while exploring the island & alternative images.
While on a 'tiger' theme,this series of photos appeared in the Sunday Times a couple weeks back. I was struck by the sheer power & grace in the animal's leap.
