Graphic Novel Cover Illustration Idea...


A little spooky for this time of year, but I tend to leap on illustration ideas whether it fits the season or not. Actually, this time of year has an inspirational vibe that comes out in weird ways.

Given the tones and shadows, I'd think "eerie" might be a better word.


With "2012" mania at a fever pitch, this cover seems quite appropriate--although I'm not sure whether the reference would to November 6 or December 21.

Steve M:

I think this is your best graphic novel cover sample yet-in terms of illustration and design fitting together perfectly.

John Cox:


Thanks for the good word. I'm developing 'shop skills that really enhance my original drawing and concept.

Next time we chat, I'll try to describe the wild evolution of this one.
