2015

Up till now, 2015 has been crazy busy! I’ve done projects, written a dissertation and been to New York! With everything else in between. Going to try and catch up on what I’ve missed perhaps this week. Here’s a project I finished just before Christmas:

A competition by Penguin I had to create a book cover for Carrie’s War by Nina Bawden

The book is about a girl in WW2 who gets evacuated. I decided I wanted the cover to be quite creative yet not be patronising to children, as from my research I found that children are less likely to read books that look childish.

I tried to keep it simple by using imagery from the book, yet still cryptive as the yellow and orange leaves represent fire.

There are a few things I’d like to change, or improve. I’d like to cut all the pieces out and try to create more shadow in between each to show more depth. I’m happy with what I got done in the time though, and I got 68 for it! Almost a first!
