In this book jacket proposal, for the literary classic Jane Eyre, I wanted to portray the mood that the story encompasses through illustration. In one dramatic scene one of the characters climb to the roof of the house while simultaneously setting the house on fire. In response to this I illustrated an abstract castle on fire showing multiple layers of flames. This also represents the theme of different “fires” or problems that Jane faces throughout the novel. Below are documentation photos of the print making process I used to create the illustration; I used the intaglio printmaking method and digitally manipulated a scan of the print.
