Predator Cities

An image inspired by author Philip Reeve's Predator Cities/Mortal engines quartet of books which are set in the far future where cities have had to become mobile in order to survive - hunting and consuming other towns and cities in the process. The lower tiers of the city are full of salvage and processing machinery and buildings while the upper tiers give way to airship docks, aristocratic residences and guild buildings.

The image was posted by the cool dudes at who also tweeted it to Philip Reeve himself who thought it was 'fantastic'! To respond to and interpret the author's own world and have their seal of approval on the final outcome is really gratifying, especially as there was no mention of giant billboards with NOM NOM written on them in the actual book...

There is a bigger version up on my website and more on the Mortal Engines/Predator Cities series of books can be found here
