Here's Catching Fire, book #2 in Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy.
(I chucked up the #1 so you can see how they work togther (or, don't. Australia?)
I like this one - love the gradient of yellow to red and the continuity from #1. Also, it's simple but has cool little touches. Eg. the target on the mockingjay
This one doesn't look any better in the flesh. What is with the purple and white? I don't get it, all foggy and symmetrical. Someone, enlighten me. I wish they'd had Jason Chan illustrate something for this that would go with #1.
I like the mockingjay bird, looks pretty funky up close and orange is vibrant and, ah, so orange. Way more appealing than their #1.
I heart this. Such a perfect match to #1. How cool are the jaggedy leaves and glistening rain drops?
So I loved #1, but I think I'd feel ripped of with them using the exact same illustration, and just tweaking the background and colours/shades. Plus the fire and smoke is distracting and randomly placed. Still cool, I guess - but I think #1 worked better as a whole...
Loking at this makes me feel like I'm panning in on an island from a copter.I like all the cracked lines on it and the blood leaf they stole from Germany :) At least they thought up something original - although I really loved the spooked silhouettes on their #1...
The same image as the first one...
but, ah, it's in red.
It's the Rubik's Cube Girl again...
No comment :)
I'm crushing on Germany's and Taiwan and I think the US has a good thing going down.
