Acts Of Closure, Creative Process Of The Book Cover

Acts Of Closure, Creative Process Of The Book Cover

When NT Anderson contacted me to commission a series of monochrome illustrations for her books l couldn’t wait to start painting! The cover illustration for the first book is called “Acts of Closure”.

The concept for this cover changed quite dramatically several times during the process. I believe it must be hard for a writer to decide what the cover should be picturing. That’s why, apart of creating a cover illustration for a book, I’m ready to offer suggestions and ideas on how to transfer loose ideas to the specific features of a book cover or how to improve the impact of the cover image.

Finally we settled for the illustration below: an ajar red door, which leaves a lot of questions unanswered. In my opinion it’s a perfect teaser for a book about romance!

Edit: The second book in the series is available! It’s called “Acts of Confession”. You can get both books on Amazon.
