A Dinner Date with The Mad Duck
AUTHOR: Princess Umul Hatiyya Ibrahim Mahama
PROJECT: Book Cover Design (Paperback•eBook)
This book is the record of an intense, probing and ultimately life-transforming conversation between two people.
One of the requests from the author was to include the figure of an "eccentric duck" in a dinner table eating sushi. With a complex photomanipulation I was able to create such character, giving it a positive appearance but without having a cartoonish style. Some details like the hat and the bow tie helped to give it a more "human" personality.
Just to add a final touch, the landscape on the background also intensified how improbable would be such scenery.
