Book Cover Concept
These are two dueling concepts my cover art team are putting together for me. Some really solid work by artist Jesse Horst. Check some of his other work here. Jesse and his partner on this project, graphic design artist Joey Zgoda, from Zgoda Design have really been genius in their adaptation of my original concept.
They have the landmark Shea's Theater in the background and have silhouetted my protagonist, Rafael Rontego, on the cover. A bit of blood splatter hits the bottom of the cover, and I like the overall effect. Now I just need to settle on a title to see what it will ultimately look like.
The art team has a few more ideas they are putting together, then we will pick which one looks the best, and go from there. Really fun and exciting stuff.
