Das Parfum: Die Geschichte Eines Mörders (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer)

I created this piece for a mock cover of the book "Das Parfum: Die Geschichte Eines Mörders" (orginal German title), roughly translated as "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer", by author Patrick Süskind. Using the motifs, symbols, and iconography of the story, I have created my own version of the book's cover. I plan to eventually add text to further strengthen the composition and overall concept of the illustration.

See No (evil)...

Finally, I have a scanner of my own! I can finally get to posting work again on my blog. So here's one of my most recent works titled, "See No (evil)...". The flying creatures of the night, hover around the figure's head, while he's wrapped in a black blanket of warmth and false-security. I used the expression "blind as a bat" to push the concept forward, in support of the figure's gesture and expression. Hope you enjoy!
