O MAR DE LUDOVICO is the first book from a set of fictions by Carlos Alberto Machado, published by Companhia das Ilhas. The challenge was to create cover art (illustration and graphic design) for these small-sized books, defining a common graphic expression for the different texts. I used black and white drawing (charcoal and indian ink) on watercolored background (a specific color range for each book) to match the dense and complex tone of the narrative. The back cover is simply black to match the drawing and to include a blurb or excerpt. Here's the result with the first book, out now. More to come next year!
