Project: Thirteen Reasons Why cover mockup
Medium: Digital Art
Type: Class project
Created: May 2017
Back in spring 2017, I created my own version of the Thirteen Reasons Why book cover as part of a class project. The book that I chose for this assignment was Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. At the time, the television adaptation came out on Netflix, ten years after the novel’s original publication (2007). As such, I chose this book in response to the increased attention Asher’s novel received thanks to its popular Netflix adaptation.
For this particular project, I made a cover that primarily focused on the book’s most common motif: cassette tapes. For the tapes, I made three vectors of the same item, adjusting the colors with each copy. I also incorporated common cassette-tape player buttons (play, pause, fast-foward, etc.) to further convey the tape motifs in this book.
