Comissioned artwork and layout design for a literary sci-fi novella, 'Water into Wine' by Joyce Chng (Annorlunda Enterprise, 2017).
For this, I wanted to capture the strength of the main character, Xin, who navigates family, identity, and war with a lot of pride and heart. The publisher and I worked through the brief to establish layout and design aesthetics. The work involved producing one ebook cover, a print cover with artwork for both front and back, and basic design for digital edits.
Initial sketches, background art for the front and back cover, and the final piece laid out on the template:
Watercolors on watercolor paper for the backgrounds, which was then scanned and enhanced digitally. Character was painted digitally on Procreate.
