Mr Arrow disembarks.

I've almost reached the half way point illustrating Treasure Island. Some visuals like this one may not make it into the final I-Pad version, but may be interesting to post.

In my humble opinion the only thing missing from Stevenson's wonderful tale is a good old storm. Perhaps on the night that Mr Arrow mysteriously disappears.....

have you seen the Mervyn Peake illustrations of Treasure Island?

Matthew Cruickshank said...

Hi Matt- Indeed I have. My old animation tutor pointed them out to me.

Do you like them?

Matt Whyndham said...

Bumped into them by accident exhibited at the Pallant House gallery in Chichester the other weekend. Very impressive, particularly the characterisation and economy of line.

Matthew Cruickshank said...

A nice surprise Matt- were the originals quite large?

I have to say I prefer Wyeths vision of TI over Peakes, but both are very good!

Typically about A3.

aye lad... a great storm would suit that moment perfectly. It's a grand old tale which I am certain your pens will do justice

Brilliant Matt! Every time I see one of your illustrations I want to make a short film about it, great work!
