I love designing book covers and book jackets for clients. The past few months I have had the privilege to design two different book covers for two of my former colleagues from past positions I’ve held.
I found the photo of the black gentleman (left side) on iStock.com with the profile montage already in place. My client purchased the image and then I got started. I was asked to create a photo image of the other side of the face using various iStock photographs blending together in Photoshop. I used four additional photos to achieve this image effect however the blood red lips had to be painted in via the brushes in PS and the multiply layers tool. It was such fun, edgy and provocative. Thanks Joyce for such a fun project!!
Here is the cover and spine design for Cops & Queens - A Mystery by author Joyce Thompson.
