Mervyn Peake Illustrations

So I decided to check out some of Mervyn's illustrational work to get a feel of his visual representation, and somewho allow me to get to grips with how he wanted to portray his own work...

The Ancient Mariner














Life-In-Death


I think it's clear to say that his intentions for the gomenghast trilogy, as well as many others of his work was intially to portray darkness, which I feel is a key elemnt to recognise, as it creates a whiole new level of depth to a story, or image...and it can be seen thrugh his roughness and gothical styled imagery..
