"When i was reading Far From the madding crowd one of the first moments that made me love Gabriel was after all of his sheep had jumped off the cliff and his first thought was sympathy for the sheep rather than thinking off his own losses. I wanted the cover i created to depict this moment. the cover is a collage of oil paint put together digitally mostly because i like the juxtaposition of the clean lines with the very organic textures of the oils." -Bailey
I am a student in university studying art and design i would love to do some more illustration work in the future but my main goal is to teach. I love making things and creating and making art is one of my favorite ways of doing that.
Every great book deserves a great cover. Sadly, many of the greatest classics in the public domain are left with poorly designed or autogenerated covers that fail to capture what makes these books exciting and inspiring to us. We're asking illustrators, typographers, and designers of all stripes to create new covers starting with 100 of the greatest works of fiction in the public domain. Together we can help to keep these classics fresh, modern, and accessible to new generations of readers.
