Hyena Book Cover Illustration

  • I was commissioned by author Bret Allen to illustrate a hyena-centric book cover for his latest collection of urban based folklore, fantasy, and mythological tales. Being a profound lover of hyenas and the style Allen requested (textured, bright, scratchy) I was immediately excited by the brief and got thumbnailing the moment I got the chance.
     
    Both myself and the client are very pleased with the outcome of the commission. The typography on the final image is not what the client chose (he's using his own type for continuity purposes) but it's my personal favourite version.
