Selected images from Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas, by Jules Verne. Published by the Folio Society. You can buy it here.
One of the best part of being an illustrator, in my humble opinion, is reading books that you might not have otherwise. Given the modern-day representations, I think I was expecting some sort of pulpy adventure story (quite an anachronistic notion, given the book was written in 1869). In reality, it’s a scientific travelogue: very thoroughly observed and researched. There are also some very beautiful descriptions of foreign lands that, when you think about it, are no closer to most of us now than they were in 1869.

I often draw out concepts before I take them.  I think it makes it easier to visualize the composition of the photo.  I put together a few of the sketches I did before each photograph, so you can see how the final product compares to the original sketch.  Just thought it might be interesting haha :)
