So earlier this week I worked really late on campus to get this project done (but it might have been turned in a week late ). Anyways I finally got it turned it! Our assignment was to illustrate a book cover for a book of our choice, as long as it already exists. I decided to choose something that I love to draw: clothes! I always draw outfits and clothes whenever I’m sketching, I don’t know why it took me so long to actually incorporate it into a project. And I might have thrown in the extra work to completely design the cover and typography, but I wanted to so bad. I miss graphic design.
The way I designed it was for the illustration to be bound to the actual book and then the cover would have the circle cut out so that you could see the main character through it. I like the idea of having the more sophisticated cover and then the playful illustration underneath. Although ideally I would have the cover be a matte black with the type a glossy black ink and then keep the pink where it is. If only I had the resources.
