The Burglar's Dog sketch book part 1

The finished cover for The Burglar's Dog has received a lot of praise, but how did we come up with it? Basically, we provided a brief to designer Garen Ewing, he outlined some ideas in sketch format, and then, along with author Mark Jones, we knocked ideas back and forward before settling on the final design. Every day this week we're going to be posting one of Garen's rough cover sketches on the blog. This is what the dog could have looked like. Click on the image to see a bigger version.

This week we're also offering another chance to get a Burglar's Dog enamel badge. Click here for details.
