Twisted Threads – Book Cover Artwork & Video Process
Posted 11 years ago and submitted by Mike Nash | Share link:

This image is the cover artwork for ‘Twisted Threads’, a fantasy novel by Ryan Kinsch. The book features both darkness and light, wolves, dreams, spirits, trees and various other spiritual and medieval fantasy elements. For the design of the cover I needed to capture a balance; fantasy that would suit both young and adult readers. I wished to paint the magic of fantasy whilst avoiding cliché and instead present something contemporary. The book is due to be published soon.

This the first project that I have filmed from start to finish. Jump over to my Website or YouTube channel to watch the creation process of this artwork!

Mike is professional, constructive and illuminating. He incorporates feedback, moreover, making artful choices which elevates the image further, to a level I unimagined. This collaborative spirit makes working with him wholly satisfying.
