Thieves' Castle Hellequin

Author of "The Jesuit Letter" Dean Hamilton commissioned me to design the cover of his latest novel "Thieves' Castle". Central to my design would be an illustration taken directly from a scene in his incredibly exciting book. Both "The Jesuit Letter" and "Thieves' Castle" are part of a series called "The Tyburn Folios", set in Elizabethan England. The villainous "hellequin" of London's seething underworld, was an opportunity to venture into some character design.
