Station Eleven

I recently designed the cover for Station Eleven published by Picador. It's a brilliant book set in the present day and the future where a deadly disease has wiped out most of civilisation. I'm a big fan of dystopian/apocalyptic fiction/movies so it was a real treat to work on.

As an added bonus I was asked to design a double page comic for the inside as one of the characters in the book writes and illustrates a comic book. Here are the different stages of development, from very rough roughs to the final spread. 

I used some etchings from everyones favourite royalty free source, Dover Books, to help with the composition.

This is the final spread. In the book the comic is drawn in the present day but found in the future so it needed to look a bit knackered.
