Christopher Gibbs Cover Illustration for The Relic Guild

This image is Christopher Gibbs' eye catching cover illustration for Edward Cox's debut fantasy novel,  The Relic Guild, published by Gollancz.

"Young Clara struggles to survive in a dangerous and dysfunctional city, where eyes are keen, nights are long, and the use of magic is punishable by death. She hides in the shadows, fearful that someone will discover she is touched by magic. She knows her days are numbered. But when a strange man named Fabian Moor returns to the Labyrinth, Clara learns that magic serves a higher purpose and that some myths are much more deadly in the flesh. The only people Clara can trust are the Relic Guild, a secret band of magickers sworn to protect the Labyrinth. But the Relic Guild are now too few. To truly defeat their old nemesis Moor, mightier help will be required. To save the Labyrinth – and the lives of one million humans – Clara and the Relic Guild must find a way to contact the worlds beyond their walls."

Chris bumped into Edward at Loncon 3, The World Science Fiction Convention this year - and they got on like a house on fire. Edward's debut is already receiving some great reviews, so we hope it becomes a series!

Sweet Juice

Publicis Dublin have commissioned character designers Juice to work on a campaign for The Natural Confectionary Company.
Working to a relatively simple concept, Art Director Austin Richards asked Juice to design animal characters showing how you can mix and match the jellies. Each jelly is a different animal, and by mixing them you are treated to varied combinations - both in the look of the animal and the taste. "With a little imagination, children can create all sorts of different animals, each one as fun as the last".
