ORIGINAL ARTWORK OR PHOTOGRAPHY
I am looking for a book cover design for my young adult book for the formats of paperback (both sides), Epub and an A4 print (to be framed). The job will be granted to the person who supplies me with the best draft concept. This will require original artwork (preference) or use of your own photograph.
The specifications of the paperback and Epub formats are below, aswell as necessary details to complete the project. The design should be a combination of a kowhai tree, a tui bird(s) and encroaching flames. These are central concepts to the book's theme as the main character's mother (Tui) was killed in a fire started by his father. Everyday after school he lies under a kowhai tree and watches Tui birds fly about. At night he is haunted of images of the kowhai tree burning down and the flames threatening to consume the birds.
I will attach some pictures of kowhai trees and Tui's to give you an idea as well as a piece of art I have found incorporating both of these that I like. These images are not to be used in the design as I do not own the rights to them. I will also attach some book covers I like in this genre for reference.
Subtitle: Book 1: Aotaonga
Author: Jed Leishman
[b]They came in boats that growled like wolves, swarming across the land in uniforms as dark as night, turning Aotaonga into shadow and flame. [/b]
Herami is a young orphan studying to become a warlock at Wānanga mo te Waiako, a university of magick. He struggles to find his place in the world of magick, while at home in his orphanage he is shunned for being different.
Everything changes when the dark boats of a foreign army come buzzing into shore, seeking to claim a precious resource that could control them all. Herami and his companions must choose between staying to fight and help their families, or fleeing to get help from the Arikitotoa – the Storm Chief. He is far to the north across a desert, frozen mountain ranges, forests of man-eating plants and finally a wide strait separating the two islands. The fate of Aotaonga rests in these young warlocks’ hands.
Aotaonga, the setting for this story, is a fictional land inspired by the geography of Aotearoa, New Zealand."

“This man has excellent artistic skills and design creativity. Most importantly for me, he was able to work with me through several steps of an evolving design concept, adapting to all of my feedback, whether it was constructive or not! Absolutely would hire this man as a graphic designer.”
