Now that author Ian Thomas Healy and I have agreed on the costume design for the characters to be featured on the cover of his upcoming super-hero novel “Jackrabbit”, the next step is to decide on a general layout/design. To do that, the designer (that’s me!) will rapidly sketch out a number of rough, small drawings to convey the overall concept. These are called thumbnails and the idea is to generate lots of ideas in a hurry. It’s not unusual to do dozens of these, but in the interest of time I’m only posting a few.
