DOUGLAS ADAMS COVER ILLUSTRATIONS

Client Kein & Aber
 

 

I had a big pleasure to create five cover illustrations for Douglas Adams' novels.

Published in Spring 2017 by Kein & Aber.

Creating the characters for the covers I was inspired by the dancers from Oskar Schlemmer's Triadic Ballet at the Bauhaus (1926). 

I wanted to achieve something simple and eye-catching, both throuhg the cut-out shapes and vivid colors.

Here are some initial ideas for the illustrations. 

Finally we decided that even the scary characters must look a bit friendly, so my Vogons are not as disgusting as you imagine them. And that's ok.
