Art & Design
Through my company, The ARTbar Hands-on Studio, I help people use art as a tool for healing, reflection and expression, and also as a way to open their heart and connect to God. About 50% of the people I work with are dealing with depression or some other form of mental illness, or who are rebuilding their lives after parole or rehab. The other 50% come to my studio as private customers who want to learn art techniques. The mission is to awaken the creativity in everyone, and help them use it to create the art that is their life!
What's your vision?
NOTE: This new book cover will coordinate with one that has already been done. NEED: A ready-to-print cover (jpg and pdf) for a printed book (full front, spine and back, 5.5" x 8.5" pages (half page) and an e-book file (jpg and pdf) of just the front cover. The title is "Think Like An Artist: 5 Creative Mindsets for Opening Your Heart to Inspiration! This book ("Think Like An Artist") is a shortened, "quick-start" version (100 pages) of a longer book,"ARTstarters: A Spiritual Process to Awaken Creativity and Ignite Your Life" (300 pages)-- so the cover needs to coordinate with it, but it should look somewhat different so they're not confused. Note: Using Vervante calculator the final cover would be:, .22 spine and total 11.47 width and 8.75 height with 1/8" bleed ) from http://store.vervante.com/c/affil/spine_calc.html
The original ARTstarters book cover, has a candle with an explosion of paint coming from the flame (pieced together with 2 graphics from iStock). I LOVE this graphic, it really speaks to what I do and my emphasis on faith. In addition to this book, and the original book, there will be another book called HEartSTARTERS, with an explosion of paint coming from an illuminated heart. So that graphic can't be used for this one. I am open to changing the graphic to something else entirely, but leaning toward my preference of keeping the candle graphic, just using it in a different way so it goes with the new title "Think Like an Artist." However, a picture of a brain with paint coming out of it would be kind of "eeewww." A lightbulb might be kind of cliche. Ideally there would be a way to use the candle but link it more to the new title of "Think LIke an Artist -- or the word "inspiration". The book will be used a free hand-out at speaking events, for quick sales at workshops and booths, and mass production. I will include the cover artwork for the original "ARTstarters" book and the graphic images used which I bought from iStock.com. I will also attach files: the back of book summary for "Think Like An Artist" - the condensed book that I need the cover for, along with the full manuscript of 60 pages (which I don't expect you to read). Upon finished design, I will forward you the bar code and ISBN number to be inserted for the back cover. Thank you!
