New Book on Comixology: The Promise #1
Hello, my loved readers:
Allow me to introduce you to The Promise, a book that has been just recently released on ComiXology, vía ComiXology Submit.
I was approached by Thomas Conklin the comic book creator with the idea and I jumped right from the start. So far we have produced a number of comics so you will see right from issue 1 how catchy and appeal this story is.
The Promise, available on ComiXology can be found here,
The Thief and The Farm Girl
A notorious thief in the world of Fairie has stumbled into the clutches of an old business partner. While a farm girl with an affinity for nature finds a mysterious artifact that her father has kept hidden from her since birth.

Lettering and logo design by me.
The requirement was to catch the fairie scent of the book and read it in a logo that will offer the reader the magic and the adventure. Right off the bat, I developed a series of ideas and sketches, and, as always, I kept the computer away from me. Old pencil and paper. Here are the first roughs I sent:
As you may see some of them has some sort of… Lord of The Rings bar-like vibe, and I used the gem, the jewelry which is part of the story. Those logos, which are more focused on elements were dropped. Thomas, instead decided that the fourth logo, since does not remind any object but keeps the idea, so it was the best and we developed from there.
After vectorizing it and fixing the proportions we choose this final version with a choice of the font for the “THE” part, which we decided to go with a font that reminds of the medieval scent of the book.
Thanks if you give The Promise a chance. it’s a great book and I think that adventure and LOTR fans will actually like it.
