I stumbled on Leighton Johns blogsite today. It appears that Johns is an incredibly talented illustrator. Recently he has been working on a project for himself to retrostyle Charlie Higson’s first Young Bond novel, Silverfin. As you go back through the posts you can see the work in progress and how it evolved to the final piece of art which you see above. And I think the results speak for themselves.
Do yourself a favour and check it out – and make sure you scroll back to the start and see the evolution of the cover. To head across click here.
