A Fish of the World

A fish of the World is written by the comedian Terry Jones.

The book is about a little Herring on a journey around world, under the sea.The style is a unique blend of cartoonish characters with immersive and well painted environments, characterising different oceans and the sea creatures which inhabit them, in a cinematic, fresh new way. 

The brief was to create a dummy book of the book A Fish of the World by Terry Jones. It was one of several books and briefs assigned as a illustrated book project, on the Illustration course, at Falmouth University. The Theme and story appealed to me and essentially allowed me freedom to re-interpret the book of 30 pages, with only two fully coloured Illustrations, but 28 other dummy pages. 

The book is about a little Herring on a journey around world, under the sea. The style is a unique blend of cartoonish characters with immersive and well painted environments, characterising different oceans and the sea creatures which inhabit them. I was inspired by books such as Twenty Thousands Leagues Under The Sea by Jules Verne, and Art Nouveau book covers.
