Graphic Novel Cover Illustration Idea...

BRADBURY!!! Very cool.

POINTLESS TRIVIA: The background is another page from The Time of Our Singing.

How long does it take to you to find just the right phrase to fit an illustration going through pages of random text?

John Cox:


Color me surprised! I had a concept for a stylized walker with a colorful, mysterious urban wall with text running through it.

That is all. I was unaware that Bradbury wrote a short story of the same name. I would have included the author's name in my design had I done a little checking around.

And the answer to your question is rather...ahem...pedestrian. Since these illustrations come first, I merely decide on a descriptive phrase that captures the theme of the piece.

Typically, the creative process is reversed for an actual illustration job.

Nice catch, T.
