Book cover art by Lee White!

Book cover art by Lee White!

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover. Or….can you??

For this month’s art contest, we are gonna put your visual storytelling skills to the test and see if you can capture the essence of a story in the form of a BOOK COVER.

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to illustrate a book cover (including type) for a well known book. It needs to be a well known book so we can, well, judge its cover!


  • Draw something awesome! Use all the tricks in the book.

  • Post your final illustration on the SVS Forum, in the competition thread, which will be announced each month. Be sure to keep this thread for final images only. If you want feedback on a WIP (that’s short for Work In Progress), create a new thread. It gets too confusing if it's all shown in one thread. Note: You will need to be logged in as a user on the Forum in order to post. If you don’t already have a user account, it’s free to create one 😀

  • Keep the file size to no more than 500 kb.

  • Don’t forget to include your name AND Forum name ON THE IMAGE so we can give you credit! And if you want us to tag you, include your handle too. This saves us a lot of time in the end when we are trying to give credit. It also allows others to quickly see who did the work later if they grab your image for reference, etc.

  • Only submit if you are OK with us posting your image on our social media and website for the whole world to see 👀🌎 💕 Also, only submit if you are OK with receiving a public critique from our judges, they might comment on your work! 🧐

  • One entry per person only, please!

  • Entries must be posted by the last day of the month at the stroke of midnight ⌛️
