Forbidden Planet Posters & Me.

Forbidden Planet Posters.

I Am Doing Something. Honestly.

The day job involves turning up at Forbidden Planet. Repeatedly. And quite often I get to design Forbidden Planet posters. Hey, there’s tea, lovely people, a huge Mac and, AND absolutely the best Science Fiction licences to illustrate with. These guys’ll end up as giant window display boards in the company’s stores… and honestly? Nobody likes working for the man but it’s pretty nice when Toho Films give you the okay for your Godzilla poster to go to print!

Fox Spirit Gets Saucy…

Fox Spirit Extricate: Love Hurts… But That’s The Way She Likes It.

Being asked to illustrate book jackets is always great… well, because then I get to read the story first. Awesome. And when Fox Spirit were kind enough to send a copy of ‘s – ‘s, ahem – ‘Extricate’ novel my way, with the promise of kinky-crime-noir, well, who could say no?

Extricate is a violent tale of sexual obsession, unfolding on the dark streets of a nowhere town. Peter falls for Judy the instant he lights her cigarette, but she’s his best mate’s girl — and he’s already married. He decides to begin removing obstacles — starting with his wife. How far will he be willing to go? How far does lifelong friendship go when he finally meets the woman of his peculiar dreams?

So a sizzling tale of crime, intrigue and sexual tension calls for the some hot dames courtesy of the wonderful world of pulp fiction. And with such a great legacy of visual art to call upon – Pulp Covers has a particularly cool selection – we ended up with one of these…

Lavie Tidhar. Tel Aviv Dossiers.

And Tea Stains.

Into the city of Tel Aviv the whirlwinds come, and nothing will ever be the same.

Through a city torn apart by a violence they cannot comprehend, three disparate people—a documentary film-maker, a yeshiva student, and a psychotic fireman—must try to survive, and try to find meaning: even if it means being lost themselves. As Tel Aviv is consumed, a strange mountain rises at the heart of the city, and shows the outline of what may be another, alien world beyond. Can there be redemption there? Can the fevered rumours of a coming messiah be true?

As the city loses contact with the outside world and closes in on itself, as the few surviving children play and scavenge in the ruins, can innocence survive, and is it possible for hope to spring amid such chaos?

A potent mixture of biblical allusions, Lovecraftian echoes, science fiction and contemporary culture, The Tel Aviv Dossier is part supernatural thriller, part meditation on the nature of belief—an original and involving novel painted on a vast canvas in which, beneath the despair, humour is never absent.

And it needs a new cover.
