drawing – “Pochette” book covers

drawing,portfolio — Danielle on May 24, 2012 at 1:04 pm

This was a delightful brief – to create original covers for a series of novels starring a mischievous, feminine, intrepid super-thief named Pochette. Working with the author Lucas Edel, I decided to be inspired – though I hope not slavishly so – by fashion illustration great Rene Gruau, adopting his classic black/white/red palette to evoke a modern minx.

    2. Really like these. They sort of remind me of Aubrey Beardsley’s work in the large areas of black negative space that form parts of the main image (the hair and clothes)
