A truly Fincredible cover

Fin Spencer, a twelve-year-old stuntboy-rockstar in training, is coming to a bookshop near you soon in THE FINCREDIBLE DIARY OF FIN SPENCER: STUNTBOY by Ciaran Murtagh. For his first fincredible adventure we knew we needed a truly fincredible cover!

At the very start of the book (no spoilers!) Fin is given a magic diary that changes everything (literally), so that was the starting point for the rough: a big diary bursting with all things magic.

We then sent this visual rough on to the genius that is Tim Wesson who worked his illustration magic and brought Fin to life in all his stuntboy glory:

We loved Tim’s black and white rough and discussed with him what colours would be the most fincredible. We also thought we could change the frog from the first rough for Nan’s cat and TA-DA!:FINCREDIBLE-rough-04Do you like the final cover and the colours we picked? Tell us in a comment or on Twitter @PiccadillyPress. We give it a fin-10!
