Young Adult fiction is often dark and slightly twisted – unsurprising, when you think about what’s happening hormonally for this demographic. As a designer who illustrates, I get to create more playful, illustrative covers in the YA genre than in adult fiction or other genres. This is one of the first projects I started to explore using images in the public domain to create digital collages. I was teaching myself photoshop at the time – in retrospect, this is obvious.
