I’m Soni (pronounced ‘sunny’), also known as the Bohemian Weasel.
I was born in England, studied at Glasgow School of Art (BA hons Illustration), and now live in Portugal because it’s the nicest place to live. ;)
I specialise in ‘geek illustration’ for trading cards, books, and exhibitions.
Previous work includes:
Topps and New Line Cinema – Lord of the Rings ‘Masterpieces II’ trading cards;
Topps and Lucas Films – several Star Wars card sets;
Cryptozoic Entertainment- The Hobbit, An Unexpected Adventure trading cards
Cryptozoic Entertainment & Showtime – ‘Penny Dreadful’ one of a kind tarot cards.
Book illustrations and maps for ‘Fate of the Norns’ Viking RPG;
Various fantasy and mythology illustrations for Perna Studios trading cards;
Published and exhibited artwork for the Tolkien Society.
I’m presently working on Tolkien illustrations for exhibitions in England, a calendar of Tolkien landscapes for next year, and a Sandman submission for Vertigo comics.
