box jane austen
In this project, at the request of Novo Século publishing house, I developed five illustrateded covers in papercut and mixed techniques for a collection of three books written by Jane Austen, in addition to the Box cover and the Poster.
The illustrations explore the silhouettes of the main characters, in addition to conveying delicacy and sensitivity, which are present in the author's writing.
The process begins with a research for references and the creation of some thumbnails in a sketchbook, which will define the general lines of the cover layout. Then I choose the papers I will use, observing the combinations and contrasts between the colors, trying to match the concept and the story of the book.
Then, I start drawing on paper and cutting out the forms. Finally, in the end, I paint the characters. After the art on paper is ready, I photograph it, to better capture the effects of light and shadow, and treat the photo in Photoshop, correcting the imperfections of the cuts and adding some texts digitally.
