This is an illustration for a book cover with the concept of a mysterious tree in the sun set. The requested main color is dark purple and bright orange. I made this with acrylic color.
This book cover design was finished in November 2014. The book is about the history of Nail Salons in the US, beginning with 2 very first women – who are called “the Godmother of the nail salon”, and then how the industry grew up until nowadays.
I was excited with this project because this was related to my homeland: Vietnam. Though these manicurists started their business in a faraway land – not Vietnam – but I still see the connection between us. I had a chance to work with the author: Claudette Varnado, and we had a great discussion during making the cover.
Later on she tried other designs and finally, she didn’t choose my cover version 😛 but it was a nice experience to me.
If you are interested in this book, you can find it on Amazon Kindle Book Store: “Nail Salons” of Claudette Varnado.
