Penguin Design Award 2013

This is my design I've entered into this years Penguin Design Award. The aim was to create a book jacket for 'The Big Sleep' by Raymond Chandler, a novel based on crime. I decided to illustrate chess pieces onto the front cover, as there are many references throughout the book, that compare Marlowe (the main character) as the knight piece. I noticed that previously, many people went with the theme of the orchids and guns as decoration, so I strayed away from this, as the judges will be expecting something different and original.
