Kiera Paxton : Neil Gaiman - Back Catalogue

Book Covers

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
The brief was to reimagine eight book covers from Neil Gaiman’s back catalogue. Using the plot and themes as inspiration for the covers.

How was the illustration used:
Book covers for my university FMP

How did you make this work:
I created these covers using handmade textures, made from watercolour and dry ink which were manipulated and edited with Adobe Photoshop to give a digital printmaking affect. I used texture and tones combined with monotone colours to convey the dark themes and distinct writing voice of Neil Gaiman’s work.
