Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes, I was in third grade, I wasn't much into reading stories until I read 'The recurring dream' in my brother's english textbook( Grade 11). It was so terrifying and interesting that I couldn't stop from moving my gaze from a word to next. I told my brother the same, he couldn't believe I actually read and understood the story quite well. The story gave some confidence to read and understand things that may not be of our level but yes, we can still kick that a**! :)
How do you approach cover design?
Very simple, think about the central storyline, scrap, scribble, swap, repeat again. See which image, design, layout fits and portrays the emotion perfectly. Yes, Choose that.
