Frankensein book cover


Book Cover for a story I, and maybe we all, know and love, Frankenstein.
Initial type treatment is being revised, I kinda rushed it... I still want that feel to it though.
Sumi ink and FW white on Rives BFK. I almost tore a few holes in it, not as durable as I thought, but I loved feeling the impressions and the dig that the dip pen left in the paper.

Awesome piece man!! Love the handling of the ink. Very nice shapes of the hand and the arm. Very intelligent.

Cheers,

Oliver

The type looks good. I would just say that each letter in the "Frank" part of Frankenstein might need some more breathing room.

Amazing Will! I love the way you spread the glow out, and the movement fed by tension.
