Book Cover Design | Gods And Generals
For a school project, I got to redesign a cover from any book of my choice. Before the project, I had recently finished reading Jeff Shaara's Gods And Generals - one of the best books about the American Civil War I have ever read. I enjoyed this book (and the equally stunning movie adaptation) and had an idea that I wanted to design for the cover. It consists of an 1861 Union Cavalry Saber intersected by an 1862 Confederate D-Guard Bowie Knife. Not only do the two weapons represent the clashing nations, I also decided to make the silhouettes of the two weapons form a shape similar to a cross. Although I am not religious, I wanted to show symbolism of how the novel draws connections between religion and war. Furthermore, the contrasting weapons reflect how the novel is told by commanders of both sides of the war, such as Robert Edward Lee, Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, Winfield Scott Hancock, and Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. 

The overall black and white look of the cover is inspired by a movie poster for the film adaptation of Gods And Generals. The poster features a dramatic silhouette of Stonewall Jackson wielding a saber against a white background. If you are interested in the American Civil War, I would really recommend watching the film or reading the novel. Both of which vividly illustrate the opening conflicts of the war (including First Manassas, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville) and the lives of the men involved.

Flag Redesigns | City of Montpelier
An alternate design of the flag of Vermont's capital city, Montpelier. Although I was not involved, I was inspired by a competition held recently (either 2017 or 2018) to redesign the current flag of Montpelier. This design includes *14 stars upon a blue field that hover over a stylized letter M that casts light over the Green Mountains (represented by two green triangles). The use of yellow and green symbolize how said colors were officially proposed to be Vermont's state colors back in 2007.

The green and blue are similar to the color values of the flag of the Vermont Republic (the famous flag of the Green Mountain Boys - which is still used as a war ensign).

*The 14 starts symbolize the 14 counties of Vermont, and how it was the 14th state admitted to the Union (after being a sovereign republic). Please note that this is a common trend in my Vermont - related flag designs that include 14 stars.

Having been attentively interested in Paleontology at a very early age, I have developed a strong focus on Paleoart - the growingly artistic, precise study of Prehistoric life, conforming to current knowledge and scientific evidence - as well as its application to Paleobiology. This lifelong dedication to Paleontology has lead to the artwork that I illustrate to this very day.

Although I still have yet to obtain an academic degree, I'm currently working on producing several pieces of artwork that can be seen here, on Deviantart.

You're welcome. I really love the quality of your technical illustrations of military gear. I would love a book full of your reconstructions of historical weapons.

I'm trying to think of what to say other than "no problem!" or "you're welcome!" so I leave this sad excuse of a comment here instead.
