How Woollardbenjamin started their book cover journey
I'm a writer based out of the Pacific Northwest. My work covers a wide range of topics, but I am especially interested in fiction and the exploration of ideas through art.
Light Bearing is a novel about a post-collapse United States in which everything has devolved into a number of settlements with a central government attempting to spread control. A group of people claiming to have a device capable of merging the consciousness of individuals into a whole arises and begins preaching this unification as the future of the human race. The story focuses on the experiences of two central characters who are caught between the government and this new group.
Target audience is an adult audience, above the age of 25, mostly men.
What colors do you want to see in your design?
I need a cover to be 2400 pixels in height, and 1600 in width. Looking for something graphic/artistic (rather than built from stock photos) but I am open to anything. Suggestions for imagery are something incorporating the symbols of a lantern, the sun/sunrise, etc, at these are significant symbols in the book. Preferably the cover will be reminiscent of the scifi genre. I've included files of covers I like.
What to avoid
I would prefer original artwork rather than stock imagery
