James Gilleard Illustrated hardcover picture book with CD featuring the song "Grim Grinning Ghosts"
In the first instalment of Disney Parks Presents picture books, James Gilleard’s shadowy, textured illustrations accompany the lyrics to the classic song “Grim Grinning Ghosts”, taking readers on a guided tour deeper and deeper into the haunted mansion.
This hardcover jacketed book features a CD of the song and details the house from the portrait gallery and séance room to the grand hall, creepy attic and more!
Here is a highlight of James Gilleard’s prep work and initial layout designs, portraying the mansion’s façade and grounds from a range of dynamic angles.
A charming picture book that is available to buy from 5th July at Disney Parks retailers worldwide!
David Lawrence refines schoolboy’s design for the new £1 coin.
David Pearce, a schoolboy from Walsall beat off 6,000 entries to design the face of the coin. A tremendous feat, his design features a rose, leek, thistle and shamrock emerging from the Royal Coronet.
The design was then refined by David Lawrence, renowned for his work with the Royal Mint. A fantastic opportunity for David to show his strong line work skills and hand drawing techniques, this new bi metallic coin will be the most secure in the world and leave a lasting legacy.
The new 12-sided coin will be introduced in 2017 and cut down on millions of pounds worth of fraud.
