Steve Augarde Gallery
Here are some examples of my illustration work. Nowadays I concentrate more or less exclusively on my own books, but, in theory at least, I'm still a gun for hire. Click on the images to make them larger. Remember to back-click in order to avoid navigating away from the site.

Work in progress. This is a draft design for the cover of X Isle.
UPDATE. For the cover of X Isle we eventually decided to go for a different style altogether: super-realism. Not my area of expertise, and so I bowed out in order to make way for another illustrator. I'm already very glad that I did. I've just seen the cover rough, and it's fabulous. Check out Steve Stone's work. The guy's amazing.

Interior scraperboard illustrations from 'Winter Wood':
A couple of composites from The Various...
And from Celandine...
Samples of paper engineering. Must get round to photographing a few more...
Sometimes people commission me to add original artwork to their copies of my books. Here's a detail from a book jacket.
