Tim Miller




'Margarash' is a book by Mark Riddle, illustrated by Tim Miller. It is a story of a boy who loves collecting and counting coins. One day this obsession leads him to reach into the cushions of the sofa for some lost change but is pulled inside . . .
This sub-sofa world, with it's sky of springs, is a parallel world equally scary to under the bed or in the back of the wardrobe. Tim's drawings are fantastic, funny and full of style, though as ever I love the working sketches (see below) that preceded the finished work even more, with their visceral energy and experimentation.
