Tony DiTerlizzi on Illustrating the Cover for Peter Pan in Scarlet
In working on an image for the American jacket of this authorized sequel, I went through many designs trying to capture the spirit of the 100-year-old character while making him intriguing to the readers of today. This, of course, is much easier said than done.
Many of us have an idea of what Peter Pan should look like based on stage plays, movies, and the myriad of illustrated books, but in actuality both J. M. Barrie and Geraldine McCaughrean describe very few of his physical features. This opens up a lot of room for visual interpretation for an illustrator, however anything too severe in redesign would lead to confusion of identifying who this iconic and (dare I say) mythic character is. So I tried to breathe some new life into his appearance, but still remain faithful to the Peter Pan we all know and love.

The first and only authorized sequel to Peter Pan. I enjoyed this book, though probably would have preferred to be reading it aloud to a 5-8 year old child. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Amazon Customer
