I was commissioned by Andy Clarke, author of Hardboiled Web Design, to create the book cover for the Fifth Anniversary Edition of his critically acclaimed book.
The concept was to continue the story started on the First Edition’s cover, where a mysterious woman in red is threatening the hero at gun point.
Praise from Andy Clarke:
Working with a new illustrator can be nerve wracking, but I’ve been over–the–moon with the work that Natalie’s done for me… She’s brought her own style to Hardboiled Web Design while respecting the feel of the original and the source material. I can’t do anything else but recommend her and I’m sure that she’ll be back illustrating some Hardboiled in the future.
More information on the concept and creation of the covers can be found on the Stuff & Nonsense blog.
