Thaw Coverart by pixieface Thaw Coverart by pixieface
The cover illustration for Ólafur Gunnarsson's upcoming book of short stories, The Thaw. Published by New American Press. Mixed media; acrylic paint, ball-point pen, tulle, toilet paper, and palette knives... plus Photoshop, of course.

Not sure of the exact release date yet, but will keep you posted. I also did the graphic design work for the cover; so the fonts, spine, back cover, etc.


Thought I'd add linkage to a (very small) picture of the complete cover, with text and all: asitoughttobe.com/2014/04/23/o…

Thanks dude! :D Personally I think it looks rather better with type on. I'm using Londrina Shadow (and the Londrina collection) for all the major title-y bits. Plus the back cover has more texture on and stuff... a'course I did all the graphic design work for the whole sleeve.

Not sure when the publish date is, but likely I'll get a copy when it is, so there'll be pics on mah facebook. :3

Toilet paper -- I never would have guessed that. It's quite fun to look at. :)

Wow this is like a mixture of three styles at once!  The texture, photographic, modern.  The plane, realistic line-art.  The fire and smoke, stylistic.  Really neat!

Very cool. I love all the textures it's got. And the way the colour and the lines on the plane are slightly off from each other is really funky. :clap:

Thanks! :D I'm quite pleased with this one, I must admit. The finished cover looks better, with the text and stuff. :3
