Here is the start of the bookcover for MacBeth. I want this cover to represent the evil that overtakes the entire story. My favorite characters are the most sinister of all.. the Witches. Lady MacBeth is also quite conniving and manipulative, and I want to show that feeling of cruelty that they all possess. My sketches were immediately bloody daggers, bloody hands, etc. The obvious imagery from the play. I wanted to put emphasis on the feeling of the book, and that's where I came up with the red pupiled eyeball. I think it accurately shows the evil and supernatural going on. I made up the eye with pieces from magazines, and for the eyelashes, i took a photo of a giant eye (a makeup ad) and copied the lashes onto a transparent paper. Now for fonts and text! Woo.

I wanted the cover to portray the feel of the play. The story is a comedy, and the characters live playfully in the woods instead of their castle. This cover shows that it is not sinister, evil, or tragic. I added the text, I chose a font that wasn't too scripty, wasn't too modern, and seemed just right for the woods theme.

This is my final product, That's How Strong My Love Is. I was really interested in using the negative space for something, so I opted to put the dark bold text in the background to create a contrast with the tiny font. I put the repetitive chorus lines of the song in the bold, because I felt that they were most important. The clouds and rays of light are made up of the lyrics. I enjoyed drawing the large font more than the small, because it was easier to pay attention to detail. For the smaller font I kind of had to free hand a lot of it, because it didn't transfer as well. I am pleased with the way it all turned out.

Surprise! I'm back. Who would have ever thought that this blog Steven made me set up would come in handy? Well anyway, here's our first project:
Listen to Otis Redding.
Pick a song.
Create image from lyrics.
I listened to all of the songs, liked a lot of them, and then picked the one that lyrically I liked the most. I ended up with That's How Strong My Love Is. SKETCHES:
