Artist Statement

The cover I have created is for the book "The Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Grahame. I have taken a more modernized approach to the design by utilizing fully digital means as opposed to the many traditional style covers I've noticed. I sought to eliminate a lot of the noticeable cliches associated with the story and chose to focus on the characters themselves in order to create a more intimate relation with the viewer. — Terrion Collins
