Andy Potts has been selected for the longlist as a finalist to illustrate a new edition of Sherlock Holmes: The Selected Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle. He was chosen for the longlist in the Folio Society of Book Illustration Competition 2018.
Potts submitted illustrations for three short stories: “A Scandal in Bohemia,” “The Man with the Twisted Lip,” and “The Musgrave Ritual.” He also submitted a binding design for the cover that he rendered in a simple graphic style.
His illustrations have a contemporary, atmospheric, painterly style created using a digital collage of scanned textures, photography and subtle patterning effect to add a touch of 3D.
Open to a public vote now (see the link below), the winner will be announced at an awards night on February 20th. #BIC2018
