Some Montmaravian Art

How amazing is this artwork? It was created by Noah Hayes, who’s studying art and design at college. Noah created some art based on The Montmaray Journals for his visual development class and I first became aware of it when I saw these great book cover designs:

And then Noah did a whole lot of work developing character studies. Here’s Sophie:

Plus, there’s a huge storyboard for the scenes following the funeral in A Brief History of Montmaray. Here’s Veronica and Sophie discussing events:

And Simon and Toby looking shifty-eyed after Sophie tracks them down:

You can see the whole thing here at Noah’s tumblr (click on the Tumblr image to enlarge it).

There’s also a wonderfully evocative depiction of Montmaray Castle:

But I think this might be my favourite – some sketches of Henry and Toby. Look how happy Henry is!

Thanks to Noah for allowing me to share these images. You can find them all at Noah’s Tumblr.
