This is a painting of a photo from Lindesfarne that I did for my boyfriend's parents as a gift. I'm not sure it was quite as cloudy as i made it out to be, but I would still very much like to go one day.

Quick, very quick, redesign of the cover of caitlin moran's 'how to be a woman' which i've just finished reading. cannot recommend it enough. Hilarious and at the same time raises some very logical arguments on the state of feminism today. The cover was hard to redesign, as the book is predominantly the story of Caitlin Moran's life, the current cover which has a portrait of her on the front is very fitting. I focused loosely on dress size and the style of instruction manuals. I promised to redesign the cover from every book I read, so ta da. Next: The Hobbit.

I've been trying to redesign the cover of every book i read recently. This is one i did for Alfred Bester's 'The stars my destination'.
I chose the red swirls and simple design because of the tiger mask on gully foyles face, and also in contrast to the very detailed cover that exists currently (as you can see below), i wanted to do something much simpler but still eye-catching.
'The star's my destination'is a really good book if you're into sci-fi.
