Following the "Troy"-commission,
I was asked by Heel-Publishers
to illustrate a book on Alexander the Great.
Helden der Antike", again written by Stefan Servos and Anja
Arendt. The book deals with the historical background of the famous Macedonian
and provides infomation about the movie "Alexander" by Oliver Stone,
which is due for release in November 2004. More information on the film can
be found on Stefan Servos' website.
The illustrations consist
of drawings of the chief characters, a selection of key-scenes from Alexander's
life, as well as some historical artefacts, mostly from ancient Persia and
Babylon. In addition I drew a large, foldable map showing Alexander's journeys.
The drawings were executed in water-soluble ink. Below is a selection of the
finished illustrations, with some preparatory sketches in pencil.
