Project: Wounded Healers (Book Cover)
Client: Carmine 'Blast' Azzato
Summary: I was excited when Carmine Azzato approached me to work with him on the book cover for Wounded Healers. He had a clear concept in mind, so I put together a plan to bring his concept to reality. As I looked at his mock-up, two things jumped out at me: 1.) We were going to have to work real hard to match the lighting, and angles of each portrait, in order to maintain a level of symmetry; and 2.) I wanted to mimic the glow of the cross in the lighting for the portraits. Below are some highlights of how we went from concept to final product.
Planning & Production
Results: We were able to take Carmine 'Blast' Azzato's concept, and make it reality for his book cover. I'm anxious to see it printed. We matched the lighting for each of his two profiles. We brought it all together by mimicking the glow of the cross on the rim of his two faces. I even pulled-off some graphics with the cross and river. And, we got Carmine a new shot for his 8x10s. The next time you see Carmine, be sure and buy one of his 8x10s, right after you buy a copy of his book for yourself and a friend. If I know Carmine, you'll truly be blessed, and your friends will be blessed, by what he has to say, about where the Lord Jesus Christ has led him. It was an honor to bring my Creative eXpression into this project with Carmine 'Blast' Azzato. If you have a creative idea for a book cover, album cover, poster, web page, or some other endeavor, ...please contact me, and let's make it a reality too.
