This was a fun, very quick little book cover job commissioned by Mattson Creative, for a Christian author. I have a love for Bible stories, and am fairly familiar with them, so this was a pleasure to do. The client essentially wanted a pattern of "icons" of various Biblical stories. I picked a few stories that would translate to iconic, recognizable imagery. I modeled some of the illustrations (such as Jonah's boat and the Adam and Eve figures) after Baroque and Renaissance paintings, while others were drawn from scratch. Such a fun, albeit fast, project to work on.

Although I was more than happy with the middle sketch, I favored the one on the left; I like how the line art interacts with the type. Of course, gold (far right) is always fun to use too.
