Bernice Summerfield Audio Season 11.1 and 11.2 covers.

I was asked to draw an image that could be split into two down the centre to form the first two covers. The image itself was to be a group photo with the right hand side darker in tone to emulate the darker storyline of that cd. Above are the pencil and finished art. These were inked in a more woodcut/brushy way that I've currently been exploring in recent illustrations.


  1. I have to admit, when I saw the picture as individual covers my first instinct was... shock.
    The different way you'd inked them surprised me and it's quite a departure from the more stylised approach you've used in the rest of the range.

    However it really, really have grown on me as i've come back and reassessed. Together, as a whole, it is a very striking picture.

  2. Thanks for your honesty Thomas. I thinkthis image works best as a whole too. It was quite tricky giving the seperate halves their own identities in fact - but I enjoyed the challenge.

    The next cover is likely to be more recognizably my classic style - hope you like it!


  3. I think it's terrific. I love your current style, Adrian, and your colour choices here are superb.
