Treasure Quest

Cover illustration for a souvenir programme for BBC Radio Norfolk’s Treasure Quest Live, which took place on 11th November. The show supported the BBC’s annual Children In Need fundraiser, and I was very pleased to design and illustrate this cover for Paul Hayes, the show’s producer.


Cover design based on the classic 1970s Radio Times layout.


The black and white illustration inked up with 0.1mm Rotring pens (left), then taken into Photoshop where the colour was digitally painted and dropped behind the ink work (right). Other elements such as the waveform and countdown numbers were created in Illustrator and added at this stage. The finished artwork owes more than a little debt to Chris Achilleos.
