Commercial illustration for Gibraltarian social historian Richard Garcia.
This trilogy is the definitive social history of Gibraltar from 1704- 1805 and is the result of 25 years of research.
The book cover illustrations were inspired by the artwork of Gustavo Bacarisas with the individuals who take the place of the vowels in the title being characters that you could find in Gibraltar in those times. These individuals ranged from members of the Jewish and Morrocan communities, a calentita seller and two ladies, one wearing the infamous Gibraltarian red cloak. These cloaks were made from military coats that went “missing.”
Book cover illustration for the autobiography of Michael Mifsud which recounts his life as a child evacuee in London in August 1940, his dreams of joining the RAF and his many adventures in his boat the Buccaneer (pictured in the cover illustration).
