Pulp Fiction Cover Illustration
Thoughts On This Piece
This project was made during my third year at AuArts, and our purpose was to gather inspiration from pulp fiction and other kinds of books and apply it to this pulp fiction cover illustration. It didn’t necessarily have to be based on pulp fiction, just designing a book cover. This cover and illustration would be inspired by a female mob boss gaining power during the 1950’s when art nouveau would be prevalent. The wallpaper and style of dress is reminiscent of this, as well as the use of traditional media and gouache.
It was incredibly stressful for me to make this, since I had never used gouache before! I believe that the cover came out pretty well though, and doing this project launched me into a world of gouache.
