|Preliminary sketch without many details for the book cover. Not sure about the background, plants or statue yet. On Thursday I will show you the start of the embroidery.|
|Great cover but not the one you normally see...the blue one with a headstone is more common. Credit for this and all images below.|
|Aren't these amazing sketches and art by Dave McKean?? I just love how they really grab you into the story.|
|Might use some ghosts and a better headstone/cross in the illustration instead of my initial sketch.|
|Between this one and the one below you can see my inspiration.|
I always love to see my initial ideas come into being.....this is all such an organic process for me and I just go with my feelings as I am sketching/stitching/creating so I am sure to see things change as they take on a life of their own.
What will you create today?
