Sad news

Some of you may remember the set of book covers I did of each Culture novel by Iain Banks as part of my final major project for my degree.

I was really sad to hear the other day that Banks has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

I just wanted to post to say that my thoughts are with Iain and his family.

I was in touch with him during the project and he was really helpful, and a really nice bloke.

I've been thinking about doing the cover of the Hydrogen Sonata, his most recent Culture novel released way after my project ended, which I will probably get round to doing some time soon.


  1. Hey, just curious, did you have time to get around to do that? Curious what your take on it is/could be (sadly, I only discovered this blog recently and glad you had the opportunity to talk to Banks).

  2. Similarly to the other commentor, I only just found your blog and was absolutely blown away by the Banks cover project. It would be great to see your take on Hydrogen Sonata.

    1. Hi. I didn't get round to it yet, I work full time and I'm very busy unfortunately =[

      I did release the prints of my previous work on Redbubble though.
