This A5 book cover is for 10-12 year old children/young adults. The story is about a ghost in Ireland - more details below.
All entries will be considered. We intend on choosing one of the entries because previous contests have been so successful.
** Illustration must be unique – no clipart or stolen images please.
The illustration must have:
• An old, multi-story castle with a big grand front door, lots of windows and chimneys and parapets at the corners. The castle does not have to look exactly like Carrickfergus.
• An ocean nearby (because the castle sits on a big rock on the edge of the ocean).
• Leading from the front door is a cobblestone path. Standing on the path facing the viewer is a ghost.
• The ghost is a young Irish man around 18 years old. He has curly short hair. You should be able to tell he is a ghost but also a man.
Other ideas to use as inspiration:
• Perhaps the windows all shine different colours (to make it look mysterious and a little spooky).
• If the illustration also includes the castle grounds, they should be tidy, manicured lawns with a beautiful cottage garden.
• The ghost has no legs and is made of a smoky ghost effect.
• The ghost has a ring on one finger with an aquamarine stone in it.
• There is chain around his neck with a gold coin hanging from it.
• The ghost could be carrying a travel bag/suitcase in one hand.
• The ghost could be holding an old piece of rolled up paper with a red ribbon around it (like an old scroll).
Feel free to be creative!
“This is the second illustration we have had created by Erickson. He is incredibly talented, efficient and has a great eye for detail. Highly recommend working with him!”
