So back to earth with a bump after a rather wonderful summer off and onwards and upwards with the continued creation of a series of anthology book covers.
The first two books, as I showed in my previous post: Judging Books By Their Covers are now out and available in the big wide world, and two more are close to complete and ready to go to print. Exciting times.
Book 3 in the series is called ‘The Graft’. Its another superb collection of narratives by a collection of both new and established, gifted authors.
This cover illustration makes use of another of my (long suffering for their mother’s artistic whims) apprentice’s silhouettes. This time posed as a hard grafting woodcutter, working through a forest that ever increases in depth and darkness… A sneakily placed ‘grafted’ apple pays homage to the alternative interpretation of the title.
