Wilson, Book Cover Thumbs
Water For Elephants
A story about a man in a nursing home who is reminiscing about his life in the circus. It goes between present time and memories. The book describes different events that happens during his work with the circus. I want to play on the memories he is having, relating to the folds in the poster. I also want to play on the circus, and the different acts at a circus to relate to the folds as well. I am going to do this in a gritty, vintage, 1920's style, with flat colors, like a vintage picture or illustration.
I am posting sample folds that, at this point, really only reflect the front and back sides of the book cover/ poster. I tried to number them with the corresponding thumbnails.
