Classic Book Cover Illustration Idea


Comments (4)


Your brushing, depth, and blending have become so great! You are there man! I'll shout it out if that helps!

John Cox:

Hey Cowboy

Thanks again for the kind support. This website is a showcase for the kind of work I'm interested in producing. And every once in awhile it finds a professional that needs a distinct look.


I like the illustration--first (quick) impression for me was Peck from "Mockingbird." Makes me think more of Nick than Gatsby (clever idea to put the narrator on the cover).

Pretty bold move to depart from the typical Deco imagery on all the reprints. Makes it more personal.

John Cox:

Hey T
Thanks for your constructive input. I was going for something outside of the typical Roaring 20's look.
