Cover design

It was great to get back into the black drawings last week, and I really liked the results.  I thought about the ideas I had had a while back for a series of Daphne du Maurier covers, and especially for The Scapegoat, and revisited them for a moment.

I intended the portrait to be less figurative and thought about manual and digital blurring, but the drawing I came up with worked as a repeat pattern, like a carte de visite sheet, but one that is printed slightly off-register.

Sounds a little ridiculous but I feel like it is a step forward in understanding how I can marry the strong sketchbook work I have with something more contextual.  I think the concept works…opinions welcome!
