PROJECT | Client required cover art for the first in an eBook novella series based on her character Carrie Border, featured in several of her novels. The art was created in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop as an original digital painting.
After the personal tragedy that altered Carrie's life forever but before her dynamic transformation in The Redemption Series, Carrie was learning to be a good OSBI agent beside Randy Jeffries. This novella is a case that stumped them both. Young middle school girls were suddenly going missing. The lack of clues and witnesses nearly drove Carrie mad. Finally, one sliver of hope came in a longshot lead. Will Carrie make yet another bad decision that will only cause more risk to the missing girls, or will she stumble upon a killer?
CONCEPT & COLOR PALETTE
The concept is that of a dark forest of secrets, the buried box (the subject of the title) as a backdrop and frame of the title and author. The composition is a simple one, with limited elements and palette, allowing the box to remain the focal point, and the greens of the forest to act as a contrast to the black and gray hues.
Green, Glorious Green
The yellow and lime green palette lends well to the cover in multiple ways. The green is the same hue used on the primary Carrie Border novel, it applies well to the wooded backdrop of the story, and when paired with the black of the box, shadows, and silhouettes, it is a fittingly eerie combination that suits the darker nature of the novella.
