Title: Death’s-head Hawk-moth

This painting of the Death’s-head Hawk moth was put into a more design-based illustration for the purposes of a potential book cover about Nighttime. The species is nocturnal, only usually seen in light traps and sometimes in beehives in search of honey.

Artist Bio:

I am a Derbyshire-based, artist/illustrator and art tutor.

I have a degree in textile design, and a masters from Central St Martins in Communication Design/Illustration.

My inspirations include natural history, explorers and naturalists, Hitchcock films, kitchen sink dramas, ghosts & haunted housesĀ  and Agatha Christie and Daphne du Maurier novels.

I am currently working on a series of Shackleton illustrations which evoke the foreboding atmosphere and historic accounts of the Trans-Antarctic Expedition, as well as developing an idea for a graphic novel inspired by Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.
