Arcturus Rough Draft

Arcturus is a annual literary publication that is put out by the Writing Dept. at the college, each year the Graphic Design Dept. gets to compete for the cover design.

This years theme is 'water' so I went with a surreal take on the subject. The concept is by no means new, a local artist from the '80s created paintings with color on the outside and a b/w interior. I definitely like the contrast, though I'm sure they are looking for something with more sophistication.

I've promised my wife that I would come up with something new for the back cover - the dog floating in deep water gave her anxiety...........


  1. wonderful illustrations, Mark! I am no arbiter of "sophistication" but I love it.

  2. I find these fun. I do agree with your wife..the poor doggie needs to paddle up and get a breath!
