The Lost Boy

Sometimes the best solution is a subtle one. Here the word “Lost” hides out in the open, while the image shows only the reflection of the lost boy in the water; indistinct, like a distant memory. The word, “Lost” is in the same blue as the water below, and the image of the upside-down boy projects downward from the word, calling attention to the boy’s reflection.

More Book Design –>
One of the most delightful things in being both an author and designer is that I get to design my own books. I have, of course, designed books for other authors. In addition, I have helped several of my creative consulting clients become book publishers in their own right.

The Visionary

Another of my 3D illustrations, in this case, I place a cube of a face on top of the right eye of another face and shot it at an angle. A visual pun on the word, “visionary.”

The Myth of Race

The image is of a push-up toy that I bought in Chelsea a few years ago. Tension is conveyed by the jarring offset of the foreground and background colors.

Anonymous was a Woman

The 3D illustration was created by pouring sand over a painting of Venus by Sandro Botticelli. Then I created a swirl to reveal the lips.

Make Me an Offer I Can’t Refuse

The “gangsta” theme of this book provoked a title made from a ransom note.
