Meet old Bill McKenzie, well, at least in art form.
I've been very fortunate to work with some great artists during the production of the Magic Mattress series. Though Ballad of Bill McKenzie introduces us to the character, and his tragic story, he is an ongoing presence throughout the series.
Here are a few illustrations to introduce you to that wily old Liverpool ghost.
In Japan with the anime studio System M.
In China with Jiang Toon studios.
Most recently with the Czech artist Lenka Simeckova.
I'm looking forward to working on an illustrated book of the Magic Mattress and the Ballad of Bill McKenzie in the near future.
