The Shining Book Jacket

Shining book coverFinally finished my book cover, about to lay out a sample page from the book. I did all the illustration and text layout for this hardcover book jacket. I love the way the twins came out, and I think the maze motif in the background adds a nice theme to the piece, even though there is no maze in the book! (fun fact!) This book (and movie) are 2 of my favorite pieces of art so I am proud to say that this piece is finished. The idea for it came to me while I was falling asleep and I am happy I woke up to write a cryptic email to myself, reminding me about my color vision and illustration ideas for the project, which haven't changed since that night. I gotta do this more often!

Personal Project: The Shining

The Shining is one of my favorite books and movies. I know they are very different, but I wanted to combine them into one object that I feel would satisfy Kubrick AND King. I assume this to be no small feat, but alas, I will try!

This is a personal project of mine, I don't have copyright to any material, consider it educational purposes. Here is an update of a couple shots I have so far. I will be updating my blog with the finished product, sketches and all.
