The Reptile Room
Creating the cover for The Reptile Room, the second installment in The Series of Unfortunate Events, proved as much of a challenge as it did fun. I employed simple form and color to create an abstracted maze, half snake and half hedge, that keeps the viewer on the edge, yet curious. Feelings of childlike whimsy and imminent danger combine as the image unfolds, not unlike the story itself.
What will the Baudelaire children do this time with danger so close to striking?
