The Girl in the Spider's Web - dragon tattoo

Dragon tattoo illustration for the rebranded 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' books

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - new book covers
 
Well, THIS was super exciting to be part of!
 
I'm a huge, huge fan of the books, so this was an honour to work with the brilliant makeup artist Kristyan Mallett on.
 
My task was to create a new dragon tattoo illustration, art directed by Kristyan, which he then turned into a makeup tattoo, applied to the model as seen in the cover images for the newly rebranded books on the release of the fourth book.
The illustration itself is also used on the back of the new book cover designs.
 
Massive thanks to Kristyan for getting me involved :)
