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!
