Book Cover for Penguin
I'm not going to mention the name of the book, or the bestselling author who wrote it, as this isn't the image that's going to be adorning it when it emerges. Unfortunately it wasn't something that Penguin's sales and marketing department felt they could work with.
Short term disappointment aside, it was a hugely fun job, and having made a few friends within such a prestigious publisher in the process, I'm not complaining!
As an aside, I got the job thanks to this old portfolio piece:
The art team liked the wham-bam dynamics and perspective, and asked for it to form the basis of the new image. So it's basically a remix. Always good fun to re-visit olden efforts and see what else you can do with them!
