Artist Statement

"Dracula has been depicted as handsome, gruesome, young and old. Instead of emphasizing physical features, in this cover, his essence is represented by dripping blood. In this way, his form is implied rather than represented literally. He is a creature of darkness and the black background represents the darkness from which he emerges. His body represents the first "A" in Dracula. He is such a well-known figure, it matters not that a letter is missing; readers will still know what the title is." - Susuwi Salvador

My name is Susuwi Salvador. I am currently acquiring a degree in graphic design. I strive to create elegant designs, where viewers find hidden meanings from seemingly simple elements. The world of design is ever-evolving and so much fun. I'm excited to learn more and progress in this exciting field.
