‘Hold on to your butts!’ – Talented fiend and all round good egg Marcel Baker has signed up to provide the illustrations for my next project – the top secret Jurassic Park mash-up. He is a watercolour artist with a fast and frenetic style reminiscent of Quentin Blake (he from the Roald Dahl books).
Marcel had expressed an interest in wanting to work together for a while, and after a heavy consultation session in an unnamed, though classy, Wetherspoons, we decided the Jurassic Park mash-up would be a good project to kick us off. I hope it’s the first of many. I’m really excited to see what he comes up with. His work has appeared all over the shop, in the Guardian, and other places, and as this first ‘non-spoiler’ pic shows, the boy knows his onions.
You can check out more of his work here. Or wait for the novel. Which will be out August/September 2013.
