Anansi Boys Interior | by Neil Gaiman
Another interior from Anansi Boys for @foliosociety ! This is my homage to Eduard Thöny, and perhaps my favorite piece from this whole project. I really tried to simplify what could be a potentially complicated scene, at least value wise. This simplification is really at the core of Thöny's genius and I think I was able to, in my own way, tap into that a bit which I am really proud of. The idea of grouping and compressing values amidst representational scenes is a concept that I will never tire of. That combined with selective rendering provides endless fun! Ludwig Hohlwein is another artist that is a genius at that. Anyways, swipe for process shots. The finish was done in black and white with ink on top of an acrylic wash with a bit of graphite rendering sprinkled on the Charlie character. The final was converted to color digitally with a simple complimentary color scheme. Special mention to @orb.illustration for helping me in the early stages of this one!

Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman for The Folio Society
The book I illustrated for @foliosociety was released today: Anansi Boys by @neilhimself . I spent 9 months on this, resulting in 30+ illustrations split between mixed media color pieces and black and white ink imagery........But, I grew up with Neil's incredible writing, and remember seeing the art attached to his projects in the classic Wizard magazine and on the shelves and noting how it was so different than everything else. Well, when I was offered this project and found I would be following Dave McKean's work on American Gods I was equal part pumped and terrified. I gave it my all though.
