How great to see some more of your redesigns! The layering of the colours is beautiful, and I especially like The Horse and His Boy, though I am biased by that being my favourite of the books, too :)

i absolutely love your cover redesigns. they make me want to pick up the books.
shame these aren't available in print.

You've done it again!

Hi... My name is Sérgio, from www.mundonarnia.com. Speak me about your business, about your art and about this Narnia books. Great work!

Excellent art, sir! I also noted, by way of your flickr profile, that you're a fan, as I am, of both Relient K and Matthew Thiessen And The Earthquakes! Rock on, dude!

Beautiful clean lines and I like your new covers a lot... However, although I love the image of Shasta and Aslan on the cover of Horse and His Boy, it does not seem to jive with the title...

Your redesigns are amazing! I would pick these up if I saw them in a shop.

I don't like this set like your last harry potter's set. they're cool enough, but the last set blew me off so strongly. and this narnia's set is a little bit complicated so I can't focus on anything.
anyway I love this style. thank you.

I love these! It's fascinating how they have such a strong unifying sense of design, and yet they're so different from one another. It's beautiful.

Have you given any thought to doing your own covers for some of the Discworld books? They've had a huge variety of covers over the years, but nothing quite as elegant and beautiful as the ones you've been doing.

Thanks everyone for the comments.
To be honest, I was hoping for something more with these covers, I was trying to push myself to do something completely different from what I've done before, it just came out differently than how I had hoped and planned in my head. They were good practice none the less.

grendelkhan,
Ive never read any discworld books, but I'm willing to give em a try, and if I'm inspired I'd be sure to make covers.

I'd buy those. Love the 'classic' approach. Very nice designs.

sandybau said...

WOWWW These covers are awesome!!
Great job, congrats!

Eric said...

Amazing covers...but it's sad to see them laid out in the revised "chronological order". The original published order is the way this series should be enjoyed.

Beautiful covers. The layering is a nice touch, especially with the Wardrobe. I'd love these on my shelf as well.

Beautiful covers. I love the symbolism and the layers of imagery you've put into the covers. Intricate but so powerful. I love the Narnia books and would love your versions!!

Sarah Spring said...

I see you posted this some years ago. Are any of them available as prints?

M. S. Corley said...

Sorry, don't have any available as prints! I did a short run of them a few years ago but don't have any left overs..
