The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo book cover design

Murdoch Books and Dymocks  are in search of an Illustrator to create a new cover for   the best selling book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.

Time has just allowed me to do a computer generated design,  if time wasn’t against me I would’ve love to  combine  traditional medium and computer .

I was keen to watch the movie, having heard great reviews.  I’m into  thriller  revenge movies so I really enjoyed this one, a bit on the gory side and a bit too much blood  but, never the less an edge of seat crime fiction.

The brief- design a cover without using any of the elements of the current cover design, which was girl- dragon- tattoo . Didn’t follow the brief too well but it was good practice


  1. i like that the whole image is not clear – keeps with the whole ” mystery” theme.. niiice !

    • Thanks Lesley,
      I appreciate your feed back. If you’ve seen the movie,the colour is appropriate
      Should check this movie if you haven’t already.
