I have recently started designing book covers mainly for collections of poetry and fiction books. Here is an example of my work.

Very well done. I love the color scheme and the way you've cropped the figure creates a very nice line. It feels very intimate, just right for a book of poetry.

The author was actually not happy with this cover (I think i interpreted the concept incorrectly). If you are a designer you know that is part of the business so I am working on a different cover for this particular book. Here is another cover i designed:

Hi Billy,

Best of luck with the book cover art business - I really like your use of strong colours and your impressionist style, a fusion that really works for covers. Having just gone through this process myself with a designer, I completely understand how 'challenging' the process can be, but also how very rewarding it is when you find the right balance. The first one is my favourite :)
