penguin Book prize

This is my finished cover illustration for the penguin book prize competition (adult category). The brief was to design a cover for the book Perfume by Patrick Suskind, the story of a murderer who has an extraordinary sense of smell. The image is based on research of the olfactory system which is the part of the brain that deals with odour, it helps to distinguish one smell from another, can provoke nostalgia and even emotional trauma.
