Several weeks ago, I was commissioned by Simon & Schuster Publishing, NY to produce the cover art for the upcoming novel "Vessel", by author Sarah Beth Durst (scheduled for release in August, 2012).

And at last, it is complete :)

I assembled a dream-team for this production...and they absolutely delivered, as they always do. This wouldn't have been possible, without them. It pays to work with only the best.

And I can now scratch "Book Cover" off of my List of Things to Accomplish :)

Tutorial videos of my post-production and Photoshop techniques are available now at: www.ibarra2.com

Ah...the finished product. They say you can't tell a book by its cover, but often enough, people buy books because of its cover. This oughta sell VERY well.

I like this image a lot... the fog goes well with the spirit concept you said it should be about. I also like the model's appearance, especially the corset... and of course, there's more Whooshing involved ;)

What I don't like as much is the typeface really...I'm having trouble seeing the reason why you combined two entirely different faces for the headline, one being about fixed stroke with while the other one varies a lot in that, as well as the V appearing quite italic compared to the definately not italic rest. I'd even say if I wouldn't have read your submission's title first, I might've jumped to read 'essel' on first glance.
On the positive side, I think your effects of choice work really good... the transparency does it's job well and conveniently merges the letters with the background in a very harmonic way.

Keep up the good work, as always! ;)

Assuming the typography was done by me, that is...which it was not. But I agree with you.

There were many people involved in the production of this image...and each one had a very specific role in the process.

Welcome to the world of Commercial Photography, in which no single person is granted full Creative License.

I would have liked to do the type/layout for the book, but my client already has people in that position.

In many ways, it was very nice to not have to micro-manage everybody, which let me concentrate on the photography. I kind of wish it could always be like that.

But thank you :)

Ah, it kind of sounded like you did that as well... sorry for that assumption then ^^"
As for me, I'm kind of on the other hand of the table... were I work, we sometimes do the photography, but ALWAYS the typography and general layout... so I suppose I was jumping to conclusions from there ^^"
