Cover Art for Two Scoops of Django 1.8

Here's the cover illustration for our latest book, Two Scoops of Django: Best Practices for Django 1.8. It depicts vines growing ice cream cones.

I did the cover by hand with pen and ink, scanning and converting my drawings to vector art and then coloring them digitally. For all the digital work, I used Inkscape.


The colors stand out on tablets quite nicely.


I also did the 50+ interior illustrations and wrote half the book. I'll be posting more about the art in the coming weeks.

The early release PDF is now available here: http://twoscoopspress.org/products/two-scoops-of-django-1-8

  1. I like to edit photos and create different backgrounds by me self, but when I need some quality image I'm also using Cannypic and download free vector backgrounds, images and other quality images.
