“Some mysterious fiddlestick!”
A little insight into my current project... an adaptation of the Fleet Street publisher Edward Lloyd's 1846/47 Penny Dreadful serial (Sweeney Todd) 'The String of Pearls: A Romance' into graphic format (a kind of anthropomorphic visual melodrama... and terribly murderous!)
It's my tribute to London, the place of my birth and a constant source of inspiration, as well as the chance to indulge in specific interests; vintage ephemera and details of the gritty reality of 18th century life.
You can check out all the various concept artwork for the project in the following gallery: leopreston.deviantart.com/gall…
I don't often get the chance to express my full appreciation for the wonderful pieces of gift art fellow artists send me. With this in mind, I thought I'd feature some of those that I both applaud and treasure right here!
