The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

This design exercise was for my entry into The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo competition being run by Dymocks and Murdoch Books (which also turned me on to Stieg Larsson an author I hadn’t yet read), calling for ‘a brand new cover image’. The design elements I chose to reference in my design include the overall feeling of an ambiguous, murky, sinister, multilayered story, and in particular, an aloof and rebellious, boyish yet attractive young woman, observant and analysing the consequences of the situation she finds herself in.
