Beautiful Day – Book Cover Art

CLIENT: Penguin Books (UK)

I grew up reading Penguin Books in England so it was really great to get contacted by art director Lee Motley to work on this book cover for them. Lee wanted me to paint a tree conveying the four seasons. If you scroll down in this post you can see some of my pencil and colour roughs where I was trying a few different directions. We weren't sure if my hand-lettering was going to chosen for the final version but it was great to see that it was and with a fancy gold embossing no less! You can buy this through Penguin Books, on Amazon or through any of your local book stores. Thanks Lee!
