“Stone Giant – Michelangelo’s David and How He Came to Be”, written by Jane Sutcliffe, has been my biggest illustration project of the last year. The book tells how the statue was originally commissioned by the city of Florence but then abandoned, the great block of stone laying forgotten for 40 years in a yard until the young Michelangelo appeared to carve one of his greatest masterpieces. The originally commissioned English language edition from Charlesbridge has just been released in the US (ISBN: 978-1-58089-295-7).
