Demiurge book cover


Demiurge is a science fiction/fantasy-based novel written by Krk Patterson. An expansive and complex story that vividly describes supernatural situations intertwined with family struggles and the beauty of the human condition. The challenge was to visually depict this epic tale, all in the space of a book cover.

The solution was to create a simple graphic illustration that ties together many of the central objects and themes in cryptic fashion–showing the dichotomy of good/evil between two brothers; tree roots to symbolize growth and death; claws to represent risk and danger; and a simple, yet artistic object (arrowhead) that brings hope and joy in the midst of war.
