From the Cutting Room Floor #2
This image comes from one of many ideas for the endpapers of Unforgotten. It is a panel from a multi-panel motion sequence that was attempting to show three states related to change and motion: the rolling, shape-shifting motion of the clouds; the smooth flight trajectory of the dirigible; and the stillness of the statue (where any changes through ageing or weathering would be imperceptible in the timeframe of this motion sequence).
Hundreds of images were created for Unforgotten but for various reasons not all could be used in the book. This series, From The Cutting Room Floor, looks at images that were cut or were never used. They vary from early versions of images, experiments or diversions, or images that there was simply no room for. Decisions to use or otherwise were based not on quality but what worked in the book.
