Infernal Devices by Kate-Kyrillion Infernal Devices by Kate-Kyrillion
ĎNo, on second thought, letís not go to Brighton. Tis a silly place.í

For Infernal Devices by Philip Reeve, to follow up from my Mortal Engines.

Iím well aware of various discrepancies (Brightonís not a paddle steamer! And it doesnít have jaws! Etc). I intentionally didnít reread the descriptions of Brighton from the book because, as with my London for Mortal Engines, I wanted to make an image that sold the idea of the thing immediately rather than adhering to the particulars. In the end, though, this picture has wound up being much more of a straight-up illustration rather than a graphicy thing like the Mortal Engines picÖ

I wanted to stay within the retro posters theme (the Mortal Engines cover was inspired by an Abram Games meisterwork) and I went for the pastel shades of a 30s seaside poster for thisín.

Detail of the illustration to followÖ

Looks great! I love that retro-looking sign screaming "Brighton", with the whole thing looking like some sort of old fashioned carnival.
