Of Mice and Men
Another piece intended for a book cover; this time a reworking of the Of Mice and Men cover I did over a year ago. I liked the atmosphere of the original, but wanted to bring it in line with the rest of my portfolio.
Book cover I worked on last week. Keeping myself busy with projects, in particular building up a greater bank of work geared towards book publishing. I’m also pushing figurative work even more where possible.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
Penguin Design Award 2012 entry.
Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency
A speculative book cover design I was working on last week. I first became aware of the book having watched the excellent TV series (which borrows very little from the books as a matter of fact) and saw that there doesn’t seem to have been a new cover design since the 80s. I was in need of another book cover to even out my portfolio, so what a great opportunity! In remaining faithful to the book, there’s no Stephan Mangan or Darren Boyd though, I’m afraid!
*Potentially unpopular opinion* I didn’t like the book; I just can’t get on with Douglas Adams’s work unfortunately.. It was a fun cover to work on nonetheless!
