The Swimmer

The Swimmer

For this brief I created a book front cover and four inside illustrations for 'The Swimmer' by John Cheever. The story is set in 1950's American suburbia. I focused on the use of a limited colour palette appropriate to the era, simple shapes and grid-like structure to give the feeling of a very man made and constructed environment.
