As I continue my quest for bigger, better, brighter geeky skills, I find that old friends and new contacts find themselves in need of reasonably priced, thematic design pieces. I’ve started answering that need by offering a la carte design services through GGF’s “little sister”, Pixies ‘n Pixels. Thus far, I’ve spent more time working on my clients’ work, and my own school work, as I progress through my degree, but the doors are open over at PixNPix, as well as here, at GGF.
To give you a taste of what I’ve been doing….
This is the cover art for Shiva Rodriguez’s forthcoming digital release of The Gallows Flower. It’s a gothic, period romance about a female executioner. Ms. Rodriguez has done extensive historical research about history’s legalized hitmen, and she’s turned that background into the basis for this engaging fictional tale of one woman, raised in a man’s world, who rises above stations, social prejudices and misfortune.
I’ve also done some cover design for Alexian, a respected Pagan musician, who’s based here in Florida. Previously, I designed the cover for his online single release, Cool to be a Witch 2.0. He asked me to come back for round two, and I did the art for his newest single, Death’s Lullaby. I actually designed two version of the cover for him. I worked with his initial concept description, then I created one design based closely upon those guidelines. However, I also created one that had more emphasis on the type, and therefore the name of his song . While both pieces turned out beautifully, he actually elected to use the second version I’d created, implementing my design recommendations.
