The hugely gifted Danny Rei is visiting our blog today to share her amazing work. At just 21, the lovely Danny, is just on the verge of an exciting and no doubt what will be a very successful design career. Enjoy getting to know the brilliant Danny that little bit better, and be sure to contact her at Art is Life: Cover Design & Art if you are in need of her talent.
I’m Danny and I’m 21. I love beautiful book covers and posters. Ever since I was a child, I was very artistic and won several drawing competitions. As I grew up, my interest in art and design expanded somewhat. What started as something I enjoyed and was good at, became a passion.
My passion in art and design led me to start my own forum to satisfy my need to meet others with the same interests. As a result, I had to design my own buttons, banners, avatars and signatures.
Upgrading my skills came naturally, and soon I became fascinated with Photoshop and the endless possibilities I can discover with the program – from photo manipulating to digital painting from a plain white sheet.
I love reading books and seeing beautiful and creative cover designs inspires me. Not only to I enjoy the designing process, perfection is what I aim for. I created my cover art service to help indie authors find the right cover artist for them. I have enjoyed working with several indie authors, as well as with a fantastic publisher – E.A.R. Publishing Company. Our collaboration has resulted in creating over 20 covers and other art works for the purpose of book promotion.
I do not have a specific way of working. Every client is special, unique and original, thus, my process is different every time. Usually, I ask the author if they have a specific vision of their cover art and go from there. And for those who are not sure what they want in particular, I ask for a sample of their book and the blurb. After I have digested the information, I suggest ideas and we go from there. Art is Life really is a bespoke service that caters to the individual author’s needs.
“I had an idea, but no matter how hard I tried to make a reality it just wasn’t working for me. Getting a cover artist was the only option, but I wasn’t sure I would find something cost efficient for my meagre budget and exceptionally talented. It was with much reluctance I send out a bunch of emails to varying cover artists. I’m so glad I did.
Art is Life: Cover and Art Design is the greatest blessing any indie author (or author in general) could ask for. Not only is she massively cost efficient, she took my idea and created the most gorgeous cover I have ever seen. She really listened and took my input rather than just brushing away my thoughts. She was completely patient, and made changes every time I asked her to without hesitation. It was awesome.
I am 100 percent in love with my cover. I’ll never go to anyone else for cover art. Art is Life: Cover and Art Design has my business for the foreseeable future!” -Victoria Escobar, Author
"Art is life; cover and design is a brilliant, imaginative and creative company that provides quality work and an excellent service. Being an author myself, I had a clear imagine in my mind of what I would like for my debut novel's book cover. Having given my publisher a sample of something I would like, the wonderful artist behind Art is Life: cover and design took my idea and blew it out of the water. In an instant the character whose voice was rambling around in my head came to life in a single image. And even when I asked for something to be included in the design, it was done to perfection. If you want a one of a kind cover for your book, I would urge to choose Art is Life; cover and design. You will not be disappointed with the end result..... and I can't wait to work with them again when It's time to sort out a cover for any future novels I am planning to write." - Susan Harris, Author
