Book Cover Illustration Idea


The book title and artwork was done by Devon. Maybe he has a story in mind...

His illustration was done with table salt on black paper. You may notice flecks of pepper in there, too. His illustration has a spooky underwater vibe that sets the mood for an international thriller that contains manhunts and highly-trained assassins.

He was inspired by the remarkable artwork here.

That's really cool, Devon.

John, seems like the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, eh?

John Cox:


Devon likes to goof around with art like his old man. I happen to be a tough audience, so not ALL his stuff is "web worthy", but I certainly thought this bit had some merit. Particularly when it's framed within the context of a book cover. It's an interesting reminder of the power and influence design has on a illustration.

I'm sure Devon appreciates the kind word.

Tom Wms.:

I'm an old Navy guy and I really like this! I especially like the distortion of the anchor, as if it is in murky waters. I am almost finished reading Shelby Footes trilogy, "The Civil War". The title and cover would be great for a look at the the Navy during that time.


Kid's got talent!

would tell the Polish public. Some experts worried that we might hear something
