This is a children’s book written to help kids learn to draw humorous, gross items. I would like the cover to represent what is inside the book, so the theme should be “gross”.
Must haves:
1. Please use a large clear font for the title. I have attached a few books with good covers. Please DO NOT copy these books, but use it to spark your inspiration!
2. I’ve attached one of our pages of the interior. Feel free to use the illustrations on the cover.
3. Absolutely no shadowing the letters of the main title. It decreases the clarity.
4. Careful with the thickness of the font. Bubble letters are difficult to read in small images.
5. We must have high contrast between the main title and the background.
6. The surrounding cover must not be too busy or have too many distractions that draw your attention away from the title.
7. The subtitle needs to be clear and legible as well. The cover must be clear about what will be found on the inside.

Please use cohesive colors that blend well, it should be eye catching but not too busy or distracting.

Do NOT copy others’ work. Must be original artwork.
