Clockwork Dragon: Designing the Kingdom of Rodney

2 days to go until until The Clockwork Dragon is out! To celebrate I’ve created a full colour map of 'The Kingdom of Rodney' where the book takes place.

A big part of the brief was to create a detailed, believable world for the story to take place in. Author Jonathan Emmett and I spend a long time working out the geography of Rodney, the layout of 'Cranktown' and the style of architecture. Actually a lot of the buildings are heavily based on a trip I took to Bavaria to see this insane castle http://bit.ly/1F1tyAE called Neuschwanstein.

Jonathan has even written a full blown visitor's guide to the The Kingdom of Rodney here.

Oh, and you can buy the book here!
