Children Book Covers Re-imagined

Illustration by Lizzy Stewart

We spoke a lot last week about personal projects igniting creativity, they can also be used to help build out your portfolio. Here are some artists that took on the self-initiated challenge of re-interpreting children’s book covers, I think this is particularly difficult as we all seem to have memories attached to the original illustrations and it would take quite a bit of talent to make you actually acknowledge that the new designs are good or dare I say better than the originals?  Michelle and I have been discussing doing this for a shared favorite author that we feel their covers do not do justice for the stories, just dreaming up the images has been a happy creative exercise (we do like to do a lot of dreaming around here). We thought we would share some of our favorite finds here!
