This was a first year project where we were given the task of designed the cover for a pocket penguin book. Whilst reading the story, i saw a reoccuring theme of love between characters as well as the death of the main character's father. I felt a heart was the best way to evoke the feeling of love as one is dependant on the heart to feel and to live. My own illustration evolved into this final design. I was especially pleased with the vein details of the heart as they could also depict lightening.
