Talking to Strangers - Out soon!

A girl trapped in a box, a boy chained to a rock and a friendship between a child and a flower. These are just a few of the themes that storyteller Fehed Said explores in this collection.
Joining Fehed Said, the acclaimed writer behind SLG's Clarence Principle, and Sonia Leong, the award winning artist behind SMH's Romeo & Juliet is a sterling lineup of the UK's best new talent. Featuring artwork from Nana Li, Wing Yun Man, Chloe Citrine and Faye Yong.

Talking to Strangers is an anthology of short stories all written by the talented Fehed Said. I've been very lucky to be part of this anthology and he was also kind enough to ask me to do the artwork for the cover.
The book has been a long time in the making, with a great deal of time and effort put in by both Fehed and girlfriend Faye so it's great to see it finally revealed!

The short that I illustrated is called 'Box'. Not recommended for people with claustrophobia! ;)

Talking To Strangers is due for release on 24th October 2009 at the London MCM Expo and available to buy online from the Sweatdrop Studios website.
The full press release along with more preview pages can be viewed HERE.
