I recently bought “Release” by Patrick Ness because I like Ness’s other work and the cover was beautiful. I really like the 2D style of the art and have done some similar covers before (though not recorded unfortunately) and I was really intrigued by the process of creating the “river” made up of two faces especially as I didn’t even see the faces on first glance! I’m really pleased with how it turned out and I learned a lot doing this cover, plus got to practice more with the pen tool to keep me fresh! This cover is not for sale and was created solely for practice of the style as well as to boost my portfolio.

Release by Patrick Ness is published in the UK by Walker Books and all rights belong to them, the cover of “Release” is used here for illustrative purposes only.
