Design and Illustrate a Book Cover

We need a design of a book cover. The design should be wide, long, and horizontally oriented. Here’s a layout of the book cover: (see attached)

This will be printed on a large sheet of paper and then folded. The width will be 22” and the height will be 10”, so you may create a proportional page that will be printed directly.

The book cover should be placed in the African Congo (Image of AFRICAN CONGO attached), so the landscape should have many native trees/vegetation.

At the center of the FRONT COVER should be illustration of a young girl with a facial expression that shows focus and strength and standing with a super hero like stance with hands on hips and one leg on a tree trunk/tree log as if she is in action and walking over the tree trunk/log. The view should be angled at a profile or slightly angled view (slightly ANGLED VIEW OF GIRL image attached) of her body such that seems a bit taller than everyone else and in command. She should be looking to the left. She should be a light skinned African American girl. She should have a young Bonobo Ape (image of BONOBO APE attached) holding onto her back/shoulders with legs wrapped around waist. The girl should be wearing “strong, powerful” boots. Her hair should be something similar to as shown in the image provided titled “HAIR”. She should wear a white t-shirt. She should have some marks, scratches, dirt on her.

On the right side of the FRONT COVER and the RIGHT SIDE FLAP, there should trees and more Bonobo Apes not including the one on her back (2 positioned on the front cover and 1 which shows the apes face and hand with the rest of the ape’s body on the RIGHT SIDE FLAP and 1 even further on FLAP at very edge of RIGHT SIDE FLAP not all of it showing). The girl should seem like she is the leader of all these apes.

On the BACK COVER should be more trees and native vegetation/landscape. On the BACK COVER, please have a river flowing from the LEFT SIDE FLAP all the way to the bottom left of the BACK COVER. On the BACK COVER, should be primarily populated with trees, and a few men with guns. The men with guns (See “MILITANTS” image) should appear smaller as if they are in the distance, appearing smaller than the girl. The men should have guns drawn/ready to shoot, or just hanging/strapped on their back. They should be wearing green militant uniforms with green militant hat. Also, there should be one small person from the United Nations uniform (the person should be white/Caucasian with blond hair, male – I have provided a picture of how the UN uniform looks) who is positioned at the bottom right corner of the BACK COVER. The UN people’s body should be angled towards the militants but look to the left.

On the LEFT FLAP, towards the bottom, there should be a hut (Image of HUT attached) with the girl’s mother either inside or right outside, laying on a cot, sick. The mom is African American.

On the SPINE, it should be the scenario of the FRONT COVER and the BACK COVER connecting, graphically nothing unique for the spine in particular besides the title and other text.

At the top of the front cover will be a line of text noting that it is best seller. Then at the bottom below the girl (starting on the trunk/log) will be the title of the book and author’s name. At the top of the BACK COVER, we should have a description below it which will tell what the book is about. On the front cover should also be a circle icon of the award which the book has received. There should be a barcode and publisher logo located on the BACK COVER bottom left. There should be a facebook, twitter and Instagram logo at the bottom of the BACK COVER FLAP. Above this we’ll have some text of other books to read by the same author. On the SPINE, at the top will be the author’s name (written horizontally). In the middle of the SPINE should be the title of the book also written horizontally, and at the bottom of the SPINE will be the publisher’s logo. I will provide the actual text soon after starting.
