Photography Challenge: Make a Book Cover from a Photo You’ve Colorized

For this project I converted a full-color self-portrait into black and white and then colorized it in Photoshop. Then I incorporated it into a book sleeve design that I created for The Grifters, a fantastic novel by one of my favorite authors, Jim Thompson.

  1. I really like the way you balanced color in this. The use of turquoise in both corners works well. The cityscape in the background is so perfect, like a lingering thought. I would buy this book just from looking at the cover!
