I normally don't post my commercial work here - but I am thrilled to have been a part of bringing this cover art and design from concept to completion. "Bridge of Clay" is the the long awaited second book by Markus Zusak, the best selling author of "The Book Thief". This much anticipated novel has been in the works for over 10 years and will be available October 9th, 2018! For my graphic arts students - this cover is a great example of working with and creating vector based art first in Adobe Illustrator and finalizing with raster based images, masking and layering effects in Adobe Photoshop. The title and author design, once finalized, were incorporated into the art by utilizing masking treatments with photographs of actual dirt carefully worked around the type.
