War Horse Illustrations

My entry for the Folio Society Illustration competition.
Three inside illustrations and two cover designs for War Horse by Michael Morpurgo.

 

Some of my initial  ideas and development sketches

 

 

Book cover design book mock up:

 

 

“We charged out of the shade of the wood and into the sunlight of battle.”

 

“The hill back up into the woods was steep and rutty.”

 

 

“This horse is yours. Take good care of him, my friend.”
