This cover was commissioned by Paul Addington, an author from Cape Town. A historical, romantic novel, the stories that make up this collection run from WWI to just after WWII. They reflect the history and personal lives of the shop owners and residents in 'Dick's Rowe', a row of seven quaint Tudor-style shops, each with living quarters above, built just after the Great War. The stories range from poignant to tragic to humorous, and the Flower Shop in the middle is the hub of all the goings-on.

About Me:
I've been specialising in illustration for the past 25 years, but also like graphic design work because a change in focus is great. Programmes I enjoy using are Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Premier and Soundbooth to make ideas visible (and sometimes audible).

A new and very exciting direction for me is screenwriting. Wonderful to learn and explore something new.

Basically what I do can be summed up as giving life to ideas and all these tools are a means to a beautiful and effective end. More details and my portfolio appear on savyra.com. You can check out my latest work on my blog there.
