Since deciding to publish this book (click here for my university project version), I have been working on several concepts for the book cover.
This is the final concept based on version 4 (below), realised with photography instead of illustration, to give it a sense of realism and impact
All drafts are shown below:
- I wanted to used the London Underground roundel as the focus of the cover, incorporating the title within it, while giving it an 'edge'
- This was an expansion on the first idea, adding an image of a vampire to tone down the urban edge of the graffiti
- Moving away from the urban London Underground imagery, I tried a version using a simple image of a bottle filled with blood red liquid
- This was the fourth version, which featured a concept I had been toying with mixing the underground roundel with vampire imagery
