Hot Sinatra – Book Cover
My good friend, Axel, asked me to create a book cover for his upcoming novel Hot Sinatra.
After reading the first chapter, which is available on his blog, I came up with a concept and sent his way. After a few back and forths he settled on this as the final art work for his novel. However, the quote may change.
Well, Axel finally sold his book and the publisher asked for a few modifications to the initial design. Axel and I hooked up one nights and we made changes on the fly – mostly to his name. This is the art work he approved. We’re waiting to hear back from the publishing company. I decided to soften the yellow to make the rest pop a little more and modified the book title with a different font and made it more streamlined to follow the hair.

Axel heard back from the publish who wanted a few further changes. We met up again and modified the cover a little bit more. The result is below.
However, the publisher wanted a few other changes and sent this back advising this was the final art work. Some changes are for the better, but not all of them.
