New work: Book cover for Penguin UK

I just finished my book cover for Penguin UK.

I worked with the wonderful designer Ami Smithson of who designed the cover of Zadie Smith's novel White Teeth amongst many others.

Birdie swinging on back cover. w-e-e-e!

Completed chaise with pillows for front cover.

Squiggly elements.

Above is the completed chaise lounge which will appear on the front. For the back cover I sent Ami a bunch of squiggly drawings (above) and she played around with them until she came up with the bird swinging from the chandelier. It's my favorite part - We-e-ee!
