What's your vision?
I need a piece of artwork to be used as the front cover of my book. This isn't a book cover contest so I don't want title/author name etc placed over it. All I need is a piece of artwork that will be used on the cover. However, it's title will be Sam Trowel: Special Patrol Youth (emphasis on the S P Y of the Special Patrol Youth. Genre: Humorous pre-teens and teens. Concept: The book is about a teenager who is recruited to work as a spy. His first assignment is to crack a gang of pensioners who are forging banknotes inside the garden shed. I want an energetic, colourful piece of art that will appeal to teens and appear humorous. It needs to be comical and characters can be extreme, fun and stereotypical as much as you would like. No description for Sam (the spy) except that he's 17, probably slim, slightly clueless, naive, inventive, but likeable and friendly. Possible ideas: 1. Sam Trowel receives his instructions via a secret ear piece concealed inside a hot dog that a street vendor has been trying to give him. Like in Mission Impossible, messages self destruct so the hot dog explodes once he's heard his instructions. He would be holding the hot dog up against his ear listening to the instructions. 2. Sam is attacked by pensioners in the high street as they try to stop him exposing the counterfeit ring. 3. Sam's in the garden shed with twenty pound banknotes hanging from pegs on a line. 4. Sam is disguise. 5. Mixture of these images. These are just ideas based on the story, but primarily it has to appeal to teenagers, so simple, fun, amusing. This is the first book in this series, so I will be looking to build a relationship with the winner for the other cover art in the series to keep continuity. No stock images please.
Just to give you an idea of what the book will be competing against - I've attached some images of other books in the genre below. The style of the Alex Rider cover is exciting, but far too serious for my book which should look more fun and comical like the other two.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their illustration or graphics.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Tim Flanagan collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
