The Little Book of Hindu Deities

by Sanjay Patel (supervising animator and storyboard artist at Pixar Animation Studios) from Ghee Happy

With dozens of gods and goddesses (and one sacred stone), The Little Book of Hindu Deities is chock-full of monsters, demons, noble warriors, and divine divas. Find out why Ganesha has an elephant’s head (his father cut it off!), why Kali, the Goddess of Time, is known as “The Black One” (she’s a bit goth), and what Hare Krishna really means.

Buy it here.

Edgar Allan Poe’s 12 Tales of Terror by Juan Diego Prieto

12 Tales of Terror by Edgar Allan Poe is an editorial and illustrative proposal for the most horrifying and meaningful stories of the author. The project develops from the essence of the writer and his stories, using the technique of collage as graphic language. Each tale included in this project has an opening illustration that introduces the audience into the story.

19th Century Author Biographies book cover series by Hilary Gaby

Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, & Mark Twain
 
The concept for this biographical book cover series was centered around the author’s place of origin, and features elements that directly reference those places. A papercraft technique was used to create a three dimensional landscape scene which would enforce the idea of the author’s setting and help achieve a sense of cohesiveness through out the series.
I chose to incorporate fences and other small icons to depict the author’s life and to help illustrate what kind of environment these literary legends were exposed to and how that had direct influence on  some of the most famous stories in history.
