Book Jacket Rough


This is a sketch for my latest book cover assignment, I usually do at least two sketches and up to four but last time the art director chose my least favorite sketch and I ended up struggling with the finish, this time it was a one shot deal and I'm working on the finish now, I'll post it in stages of completion.

Looks funny and complex!
Glad someone's art sells!

Dear Stephen,
Spooky, but humorous at the same time. Your work implies "A Busy Woman's Guide to Murder" very much!!
Cheers, wink, wink,
Sadami

I am reminded of the words of the late, great Ed Skyner - do several sketches if you must, but only submit your preferred to the A.D.
Don't give 'em the luxury of choosing!

Looking good gringo.

I like it. Its too much dark and serious. The book is a thriller?

I love doing these covers, it's a murder mystery.

Roj, Great to see you here but what is bomo?
