This was for a class assignment, which was to create a cover inspired by the Arts & Crafts Movements for the Fairy Craftmother herself. I paid careful attention to colors used in the movement, and tried to capture Martha Stewart’s attitude towards crafting by showing it in a friendly and positive manner.
I decided to draw my concept by hand and digitize it to use on my cover. I did this because I wanted a more authentic and playful feeling for my cover to better reflect Martha Stewart’s ideals. I also did this to reflect the beliefs of the Arts and Crafts movement that hand made things carry the mark of the artist and are therefore better. I used natural imagery and colors because the movement looked to nature for inspiration.
