Rejected cover for a recent project (boo!) Some things are never meant to happen, often one party has a very specific idea of what they want but can't always articulate it which makes an illustrator's job harder. Equally, sometimes it's the wrong illustrator for the job which I think was the case for this one. Pity, I LOVE a dinosaur!
I'm rather fond of a devil & a recent conversation reminded me of the line from Temple of Love by The Sisters of Mercy mentioning the 'devil in a black dress' so I thought it'd be a shame not to depict one.
Steve May is an animation director & freelance illustrator based in London (UK). He was born in sunny Hastings & spent his childhood drawing lots of things & discovering interesting ways of injuring himself.
He still draws lots but injures himself less regularly these days.
