“The bloody chamber and other stories”: New works from Matthew Carey Simos!!

Matthew Carey Simos

Hi all!

I am posting the illustrations I did for a competition organised by the House of Illustration  and the Folio Society which ended in January. Each participant was asked to illustrate three short stories from Angela Carter’s “The bloody chamber and other stories” and propose a binding design. The stories were “The bloody chamber”, “Puss in boots” and the “Company of wolves”. My choice of medium was relief print and at the very beginning I was considering a five colour reduction print. This proved to be impossible due to lack of time and so I decided to go with digital colouring instead.

My long hours of carving were accompanied by the “Gormenghast” audio book, which I highly recommend to anyone who is into the “grotesque” fantasy genre.

Enjoy!
