Figures in my Illustration Practice

The brief was to produce a book jacket for Ernest Hemingway's 'The Sun Also Rises'. I wanted to communicate tension before the dramatic event of the bullfight, the still solid graphic quality of the figure and the cape is juxtaposed by the loose, and flowing energetic line work which suggests the anticipated motion of the matador.
