The first image is an ORIGINAL piece of artwork denoting Jesus studying. (deleted)
THIS ORIGINAL PAINTING IS COPYWRITTEN BY ME and MAY NOT BE USED IN ANY OTHER WORK.
I commissioned this for the book cover, but I am not completely tied to the painting of Jesus on the front cover if it restricts the design - the painting could also go on the back cover or merely be found on the website if we move a different direction on the cover. I am looking for creative thinking; something dramatic and not entirely "traditional" that really stands out.
There is a muted color version as well (deleted)
The Hebrew word is the Tetragrammaton that describes the God That Jesus Knew. It does not have to be in that color or font or that exact image that i have uploaded; in fact, it could be a drawing or rendering or watermark above the title or whatever- but those Hebrew letters would be nice to have above or behind the title somehow. I consider the letters themselves to be an important design element as they denote the true subject of the book, which is GOD.
The last image is of a picture I find attractive of a tunnel in Jerusalem, in case an architectural element were needed or desired illustrating the place Jesus spent so much of his time. I am not tied to this element at all; in fact, I haven't purchased the picture yet. I just put it in here because I was recently in Jerusalem and was drawn to it, and because it kind of echoes the shape of Jesus in the painting.
I have read how some people say you shouldn't upload any sample images - but I'm hoping the designers who opt to work with me will not let these sample images restrict their creative vision.
Also, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO BE CREATIVE AND ILLUSTRATE A DIFFERENT VISION if you imagine something other than these images. I want this to look very up-to-date and clean.
Thank you for your consideration.
