Book Cover Ideas

Sometimes getting to the solution doesn't come on the first try.  

I pride myself on getting to a great solution quickly... but that isn't always a slam dunk.  My client, Nazarene Publishing House, needed a cover to a new book that captured the spirit and tone perfectly. This can sometimes be subjective so over the course of a couple weeks, I submitted the following designs.  I'm proud of the final design (bottom image), but I also really like the rejected concepts.  Casualties of war. :)

Kyle Gustafson and Aaron Muther of Target Creative came up with a super fun Instagram installation to promote the Avengers movie and Target exclusive toys.  Because I was a professional comic book artist in a past life, they called me in to storyboard their idea.  Below is the final product and my layouts (with help from Jonathan Koelsch) next to the finals.
