Kevin McCloud Book Jacket / July 14th, 2010

It’s not often that I get asked to do a book jacket but I was delighted to be commissioned for Kevin McCloud’s 43 Principles Of Home (published by Collins).
The idea for the cover was actually based on a painting I’d done of Gordon Downie that George Adams at NB Studios had seen. He took the idea and got clearance from the publishers for the design and composition of the cover, so when I was contacted pretty much everything had been sorted ,it was just down to me to work it up to paint.
All in all I am happy with the way the painting came out and look forward to seeing how the design works on the book shelves. More book covers please!
