Christopher Gibbs

Christopher has recently illustrated the covers for L.J. Smith’s Night of the Solstice and Heart of Valour.

Simon & Schuster commissioned him to complete the first cover with only 7 days from brief to final artwork, to coincide with the launch of the TV series ‘The Vampire Diaries’ based on Smith’s popular novel.

Christopher manipulates digital imagery to create multi-layered pictures, using photography and graphic symbols with rich textures, which perfectly suited the brief.

He explains: “It was a real challenge; a couple of sleepless nights, lots of digital painting and some fairy dust thrown in for good measure. The following week I completed the cover for the sequel, with about the same amount of time!”
