Process and Refinement

It's been awhile since I posted anything about the BLOG novel I had been
working on. Since the last post I hired the amazing Christine Norrie who really brought this project to life. Here is the various incarnations of her work from start to finish.

Thanks for posting this! I think it's fascinating to see the way a jacket evolves, from initial concept, through various comps, to final.

The illustrator is awesome. I really got a sense of what was going on, too. I'd pick this up for sure, (even if I dare to admit stupid stuff like this happens to me all the time!) And I prefer this type of treatment rather than a typical 'straight' portrait shot.

And the fact that you carried the work into the interior is truly brilliant! It's the attention to detail that makes a project so much better and worth while in my eyes.

Bravo!
