Het spel – book cover

Share Project :

I created this illustration for the cover of the book 'Het spel' by Emke Rientsma. After having read the manuscript, I presented several thumbnails to the publishers (Lemniscaat) and eventually painted this summery scene at the beach. I based the view on the actual locations in the book, and the beach is based on the specific Dalí chess board mentioned in the story. It's very fun to see this book in local book stores now! Drawing a map on the end papers was also definitely a bucket list item for me.
