Crossing the Line.
Crossing the Line is an upcoming novel exploring the themes of football and politics and what happens when these two collide. The authors wanted us to create a cover illustration indicating both the strong football themes within the story. especially with imagery around the FA cup, and the 'dodgy going-ons' behind the fight between two iconic London clubs.
The overall atmosphere created in the cover illustration shows the initial idea of sports and competition, however through the use of colours, the reader can immediately see that there is a dark atmosphere and a sense of movement and tension like something is about to happen.
The smaller details within the cover that foreshadow the storyline is something that people can really enjoy before and after reading the book, as a story within the image is something that can capture a reader before they even open the book, which is something these author's wanted us to bring across.
