I had finished the black and white scratchboard work on this cover and a minimal amount of color was called for on the actual book cover design. Milan Bozic, at Harper Collins was the art director and an amazing designer I was lucky to be working with.
I love his design and the whole look of the series with the foil printing on the physical copies of the book but I wanted to explore some more of the piece’s possibilities giving it the full color treatment. I’ve included below a image that shows how it progressed.
I can completely get lost in cropping an image and trying to figure out how it’s best presented. Losing all perspective till I walk away from the piece and take a look at it with fresh eyes.
