A note on cover design . . .

January 11, 2018

THE COVER ART for The Bear and His Daughter is finally done! Like all cover art, this painting sets the stage for the book's energy, tone, and story. But a painting's design is itself a tale to be told. This one started with a series of team conversations about The Bear and His Daughter. During those meetings, we brainstormed, sketched, messed around with design ideas, and tried to think about a moment that summed up the heart of the story. Some of the sketches are very close to what the final painting will look like. (See below, #2.) From there, we try out all kinds of variations. Some of these adjustments are major (for example, #1 --> #2 or #7 --> #8). Some are subtle (for example #5 --> #6 or #11 --> #12.) No detail is to small, no change is off the table, no punches are pulled. Either its exactly what we want, or we start over. It's a blast. Hope you like the process shots (#1-11) and the final painting (#12). For the Remain!
