Here’s another whimscial cover artwork I created for The Writer magazine. It illustrates a feature by Richard Goodman where a writer celebrates his readers. It’s a playful piece, and I was going for a multi-faceted image with a great many individual scenes showing people reading a book, and the happy author of that book in their midst.
I wanted this to be funny and full of gleaming sunlight, and so I decided to go for a city-by-the-beach setting with people everywhere, reading a little red book; and the proud writer is red-colored, too. In trying not to distract the attention too much, I used only a few warm colors.
