Freelance: Writer/editor Jim Sutherland commissioned a cover design for his first book, Stack and Tilt, a smart, funny, sexy novel about golf and golfers.
Challenge: Since Stack and Tilt was to be sold mainly as an e-book on Amazon, Kindle, Smashwords and Nook by Barnes & Noble, the design and illustration had to be readable and eye-catching at thumbnail size.
Result: Jim and I have been long-time collaborators after working together in magazine publishing for many years. We bounced around some ideas and designs back and forth until I was able to capture the essence of the story with this illustration which was also used for the invitation to his book launch. Both Jim and I were thrilled with the final design and illustration but he has since changed the name to Snap and Slice because of trademark issues. I have left the original design intact but the new title can be view at the project link above.
