The history department at California State Unversity, Fullerton invited me to design the cover of their yearly journal titled the Welebaethan. The journal has won an award for consecutive years in a row. I have been invited back to design this year's issue as well.
The theme for the issue encompassed the over arching tone of the articles in the journal, surrounding WWI topics. The journal editor wanted to move away from previous mideaval designs and go with an ethereal watercolor design. I hand panted the cover using a splatter technique you can watch on my Youtube channel. Click here to watch
I then digitized the painting by scanning and used photoshop to design the text. The font style was selected by the editor and they requested I create a vector illustration of a man gazing up at the stars. I selected the theme of looking back at history.
