Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Carey

The logo for this piece was taken from the book art and from Phèdre’s marque (tattoo). I customized the gorgeous Angilla font so that it was more spiky and added some “darts” to several of the letterforms.

I created all of the tattoos/graphic elements in Illustrator, based off victorian floral sketches and wallpaper. I then applied the “tattoos” to photos of a model to create some flyer ads.

I wanted the overall feel to be romantic and mysterious, but with a cold, dark edge.
