White Lies, by Alice Sabo

Front, back and spine design and illustration for Alice Sabo's murder mystery novel, White Lies.

Alice had previously published White Lies with her own cover, but having asked me to work on the cover for the follow-up, Dark Deeds, she thought it would be a good idea to also have me design a new cover for the first book.

The story follows Asher Blaine, a washed up actor who is framed for the murder of his ex-manager. The cover is based on a scene in the book where Blaine discovers his house has been set alight!

Below is my initial draft sketch for the cover illustration after reading Alice's brief.
