This book cover is the result of some experimenting with new techniques (new to me at least!) in Photoshop. I greatly prefer Illustrator, so I don’t have the greatest confidence in my Photoshop abilities. I simply placed multiple side profiles of women and women on top of using an overlay and then created a bitmap with a halftone pattern comprised of diagonal lines. Then I placed the black & white bitmap on top of the original color composite.
The more miraculous part was that the visual seemed somewhat appropriate for a book I was assigned about psychological trauma and victimhood in regards to terrorism. I presented it and it was approved!
