Okay, so I'm doing a series of covers for Penguin American Classics. This is a concept sketch for a cover for the The Scarlet Letter. The type is very rough and misaligned, and the first "T" is an experiment for capitals, but that's the basic gist of the it, style-wise. I was trying to subtly show the secret relationship between Hester Prynne and the young minister, I forget his name. I feel like focusing on the actual scarlet letter "A" is kind of overdone. Instead I would incorporate the scarlet in the color scheme. This is only the first sketch I've done so let me know if the concept itself is lame, or if not, what could be improved with this one. I'll do more though. Also, no color yet, in case you didn't notice.

My intentions are to do a mural-ish horizontal. narrative like, sunset scene. With a church, old, and new building, and a vacant lot with kids playing in it and a painted mural to represent hope and an old man sitting in a chair, and construction guys working. I am a tad lost, but I will get back to it. I slightly changed directions, and got another idea, more poster-like. But I want to pursue idea 1 [nothing posted for that yet]
-Also, my apologies, for not being in class. I honestly overslept, woke up on my own at like 10:30ish and got to school at 12 and class apparently ended early. But I just wanted to post something up to show where I'm at. And the image was badly scanned and cropped.

I spent all morning at the bank trying to get my money back, but I have my homework. I chose Black Aggie of Druid Ridge Cemetery in Pikesville (Northwest side of the city). Here's a link to her story:
Fraternities would use the spot to haze pledges and so I focused on the rituals surrounding the legend of the statue at the height of its fame, and ultimately, where it was going.
It is not finished, I bit off way more than I could chew in two weeks. Any incite would be awesome.

this is a fotocollage of my idea for the baltimore piece, for the final i would like to draw this and for now i am working on the layout with fotos, i would like it to look like a pulp fiction cover and realize that it does not seem quite that threatening now...but maybe this also works as a contrast. i am a bit lost right now.
