A new museum dedicated to the art of storytelling, funded by legendary Star Wars director, George Lucas, is to be built in Chicago and planned to be completed in 2018.
We are extremely proud to learn that artwork from Chris Moore is one of the first to be selected to exhibit.
Chris is a world-renowned commercial illustrator specialising in sci-fi illustration and the piece chosen by the Lucas Museum was painted for Philip K. Dick’s classic novel “Ubik”. It fits beautifully in the catalogue of images that have so far been revealed on their website.
We love the new cover look Carrie May has created for best selling author Katherine Rundell. Carrie worked with the design team at Faber and Faber to illustrate this beautiful cover for Rundell’s debut novel ‘The Girl Savage’, the tale of a young girl uprooted from her life in Zimbabwe, destined for boarding school in London. We love Carrie’s artwork, which captures Will’s wild adventures on her African farm.
