Whilst completing the House of Illustration and Folio's Society's competition to illustrate Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World', I spent quite a lot of time in awe over last years competition winner, Igor Karash's illustrations. I felt drawn to read Angela Carter's 'The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories', I wouldn't even attempt to illustrate the book after the Folio Society's addition but I was inspired to create this portrait of the Tiger from 'The Tiger's Bride' behind his mask and wig.

My entry for this years House of Illustration competition. We were asked to design the Binding and three internal illustrations for Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World' for a possible commission with the Folio Society.
"Fine to think we can go on being socially useful even after we're dead. Making plants grow."
'slowly, raised by invisible hands from below, there emerged from the one a painted image of an eagle, from the other that of a man...'
'But it was not alone the distance that had attracted the Savage to his lighthouse; the near was as seductive as the far.'
