Playing with shapes

I made a quick thumbnail sketch of a woman in front of a black
background with just her clothes/gear being positive. This was
the result.

I like the different offbeat shapes that came from this. Also
based on a quick sketch, though this one is slightly different
than the one on my portfolio blog.

Book Cover test design

I had an idea of making a mini show book (6x7in) for
different blog artists, submitting work from their blogs to be shown in the book. I thought of making it a non-profit thing to hand out at comic cons and other shows, to give artists more exposure of their blogs & promote their work. I'd love to do something like that, or a mini artist magazine thing. I'm sure some artists would actually want to participate in something like that. Of course there's the question of funding for the books to be printed. Starting out might be an out of pocket thing unless I'm able to find help in some non-profit organizations arena. Just an idea anyway.

Originally the cover design started out as a project I was going to propose to Coca-Cola for an artistically stylized incentive booklet to give away to their customers to promote their products, but I decided against it. Below are some cover design tests I did in photoshop. It was fun though.

And here's a design I was planning to do for Hewlett Packard, but then I came to my senses. Just got carried away, just a little bit. But I like designing little booklets.
