Cover Art Design Process for ‘Trees’

Here we see the beginning sketch work for what develops into the final cover. Not only does this tree reflect the physical nature described in this piece, it also represents the nature of human identity and connection reflected in Hemphill’s work.
The illustration develops to include shadow and depth, more accurately representing what Hemphill hopes to express about identity.
Here is the initial rough cover design. However, it was decided to use an earth-tone to better reflect the cover and contents, as well as fit the aesthetic of the ‘Overhead’ series.
