What do you do?
Writer. I'm finishing up a fiction manuscript, "Moral Hazard," a legal/psychological thriller about a successful lawyer who loses his mind after his sons are accused of a terrible crime.
How many pages of illustration do you need?
One page (see attached stock photo: Moral Hazard mock cover)
Does your illustration need to be a particular size?
Approximately 4x6 illustration based on attached stock photo of businessman with his arms crossed.
What is your industry?
Describe the target audience for your illustration
I'll be sending my fiction manuscript to agents and publishers and want them to visit my website ("author's platform") and get a sense of what the manuscript might look like as an actual book.
What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your lillustration?
I want the attached stock photo of businessman with his arms crossed "Photoshopped." Add title of manuscript "MORAL HAZARD" and author name "RAY LAMBOY" to illustration. The goal is to make it look like a real legal thriller book cover.
Style and Concept
What lillustration styles do you like?
Attached are sample legal thriller book covers such as "The Tenth Justice" and "Equivocal Death." As you can see, the cover photos have been touched up to look dark, shadowy, ominous (consistent with the tone of the legal thriller genre).
What colors do you want to see in your illustration?
What colors do you NOT want to see in your illustration?
No color bias, but dark colors are appropriate for this genre, legal thriller
What adjectives should best describe your illustration?
Tragic. The story is about arrogance and hubris, humiliation and catharsis.
Where will you use the illustration (print, website, etc.)?
Photoshopped photo/illustration will be posted on author's website/platform.
Do you have additional info or links you'd like to share?
Photo/illustration will not be used as book cover--it's a mock-up of what an unpublished manuscript might look like in book form.
