4: Redesign a Book Cover
It seems that the past few days have seen me take a more design-oriented approach to the art as opposed to a traditional painting approach.
Today’s challenge is “Redesign a Book Cover”. I chose Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. He’s definitely my favorite author of all time, but trying to decide on a favorite book by him is a toss up between three or four.
I really like the color choices on the “Vintage” pressing of Kafka, but I never liked the cover itself. The illustration made no sense to me. I re-used the colors but took the visuals in a direction I felt more appropriate. If you haven’t read the book, then this won’t make much sense. I encourage you to read the book though; it’s quite fantastic.
