Book Covers at Central School
I'm having three days of fun at Central School this week. I'm a visiting artist working with the 6th graders, creating book covers.
I have to head out the door in just a minute, so this will be text-light. But I wanted to show you some of the cool covers the kids worked on.
I talked to them about how to bring character and setting into the covers. How to create a certain tone. And composition.
Now some of the kids chose to make covers for sketchbooks, so character and setting didn't really factor in. But they still had to work on a design and compose it.
There weren't enough O's in the scrabble tiles, so this kid used pom-pom's. Points for creativity.
Magoo said he'd like to read Weird Stories. So I'd say this cover did it's job.
Love the one in The Dark Side.
Off to make more covers.
