Help! I need a professionally designed book cover.
I'm looking for a very specific illustration. This is a book dealing at length with consciousness and its forms/ evolution, so I was thinking a dilapidated interior of some abandoned building that is slightly being taken over by nature. On the front cover I want a table, with a stiff, severed monkey's appendage (arm) with a closed fist. Above this is are two robotic arms coming from the right corner (ish) of the cover. One arm is using its fingers to try to pry open the monkey's closed paw and the other is approaching with what looks like a crowbar made of DNA. This object I want to be designed with a likeness Lance of Longinus, seen in the files. But don't replicate it! Make your idea of a red (DNA) crowbar. On the background of the front cover is a wall with a Venn diagram shape composed of small individual circular mirrors, some can be busted or gritty (for a idea of what this would look like, see the Venn diagram photo collage as a concept then adapt it). As for the back cover, make a mess of objects on the floor of this room. Scraps of paper, bottled water and whatever you think bottled air would look like. Rubbish, compost, maybe even Donald Trump's hair rotting somewhere in the corner. The tone: give me something eerie yet hopeful. Maybe the robotic arms are casting a blue light from where they're coming from. Although I'm trying to evoke "The Creation of Adam," I really don't like the idea of copying that design, only the thematic concept here.
Whoever is the winner of the contest will be expected to provide to me a JPEG formatted for the Amazon Kindle Store, a TIFF of the front cover, PDF of the entire cover set to the proper format of the book's dimension, and the original work file so I can pull elements and backgrounds for promotional purposes.
