The Challenge

The fun part of working on this book cover was not just figuring out which animals to place on the "Smart Lab" (the company mascot) so that they contrasted well with the logo; it was then creating them!

For instance, one of the clients really wanted an emerald green snake curled around the dog's neck, but those snakes don't like to pose that way. So I took an hour to create and model it in Photoshop and gave the client exactly what he wanted.

(I even gave him an optional cover, but the one that went to print was the best. And the spider crawling up out of the pocket was deemed a little creepy...)
