Skater and ninjas, oil 20 x 30cm, c.1998
Another old YA cover. This is the kind of painting one would normally render digitally these days, but the subtle brushstrokes lends this picture a charm that I think would otherwise be missing. There's something always pleasing about hand-painted, hard-edge geometry and slightly dodgy perspective, the mainstay of so much early modernism.

  1. Mixing the paint must have given you a more nuanced palette? If you ever work on a line of fabrics or wallpaper, this plaid scheme needs to be included ,it's gorgeous.
    Love how the orange electric burst still stands out against all that color.
