So heres what I came up with so far, today I also laid it out in indesign. But I can't upload a indd file so heres the basic illustration I'm working on at the minute. I may take it further but I'll decide that tomorrow. Also experimented with the colour of it.
I decided to design for Alice in Wonderland. I thought this may be a mistake due to the imagery already surrounding the story being so famous. But I tried to use this to my advantage.
I want to create a darker version of the cover, to pick up on the adult fans of the book. I want to echo the style of the famous illustrations as ignoring them would be stupid.
