Company of Liars
MARCH 2, 2009
I completed the cover art for Company of Liars a while ago, I am told it is in the bookstores now. A story of a Chaucer- era wandering band, it presented a unique problem, to show many of the charachters and situations from the book. I made a breugel-esque background painting and then painted many little pieces to fit inside the circles.
the full cover-the hand with the runes is on the spine, the area just to the right of that is for blurbs...
I posted this next to another post of my daily paintings because I wanted to point out that I would not have been able to do a project this before I took myself to the woodshed.
