Illustration: Redwall: The Rogue Crew

Happy to see that Redwall.org recently announced The Rogue Crew, Brain Jacques' 22nd Redwall book! Our friends at Penguin kindly asked me to illustrate The Rogue Crew back in October, and work is well underway. Here's the blurb:

From Salamandastron's Western Shores, to the High North Coast, here they come. Captain Rake Nightfur, and his Long Patrol Hares, with Skor Axehound and the Rogue Crew Sea Otters. Marching boldly into a thrilling saga, singing, feasting, swashbuckling, and battling. Questing for the infamous ship Greenshroud, crewed by Searats and Corsairs, Captained by the murderous Razzid Wearat, terror of both sea and land. His aim, the conquest of an Abbey! Was there ever such a blood and thunder chase? The fate of Abbot Thibb and his Redwallers hangs in the balance. Who will be first to the gates, who can save the legendary Abbey from the clutches of a Wearat? On, on, to victory or death!
