The Maloney’s Magical Weatherbox, published by Orion, is a brilliant debut by Irish author Nigel Quinlan.
(The cover art, above, is by the excellent Erwin Madrid.)
It was my great pleasure to provide the interior illustrations. I love working in black and white, and Nigel’s vivid characters and fantastic situations, infused with celtic magic, were wonderful to draw. You can see a few of them below.

Neil and Liz Maloney’s dad is a Weatherman – but not the normal kind. He’s the person who makes sure the seasons change every year. This year, though, the Autumn hasn’t arrived and the weather is spiralling out of control. Witchcraft is at work, but can Neil and Liz stop the chaos before it’s literally the end of the world?
