Bram Stoker: Dracula
Further to yesterday’s post, here’s one of the several new mock-up book covers I’ve made. Back in 2010 I made a series of horror-themed paintings, including this one: ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’. The orginal canvas is long-since lost, but I keep a digital file of everything I make – even the ones I end up destroying – and used that file as the basis for this design. I’ve made several attempts over the years to render this as a cover for Stoker’s novel, but they were always crap. Finally I’ve got one which passes the ‘if I saw this in a shop, I’d buy it’ test. There’s many more to come over the weeks ahead, or you can check in on my Illustration page, where I’ll be adding new ones on a regular basis.
