I did this a few months ago and am now just getting it up. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, but definitely makes me want to do more hands-on art again.

revised cover for ‘Midnight Kiss’

Just finished revising the ‘Midnight Kiss’ cover. Cleaned up the type a bit—and in some cases, made it readable (had one of those ‘what was I thinking’ moments). Placed the final photography and voila.

Working on a book cover for ‘Midnight Kiss – Simplifying Christian Dating’. Below are the two options I submitted. I’m quite pleased with the typography especially. Please share your thoughts.

Compiled and updated my portfolio of graphic design work. Greg Keysar shot the photos of my work. I shot the bad photos of the finished book. Hand-made, stitched binding—cover wrapped in linen. Turned out pretty nice. I would probably use a lesser weight stock for the pages next go-around.
