As I mentioned in my last post, I recently finished writing a manuscript for a middle grade novel. I wanted to a have a book cover design in my portfolio so why not my own book?! This is a mixture of an acrylic painting (below), with a little digital help, including the addition of the paint pour from my last post.
The next image is the first rough draft I did on my iPad. I'm going to set it all aside for a while because I think the best result lies somewhere between, and like the manuscript, it needs time to simmer.
