Jack Kerouac – On The Road

An illustrated book cover idea for the novel 'On The Road' by american writer Jack Kerouac

The novel describes the story of the main character Sal’s travels across America,┬áliving life against a backdrop of jazz, poetry, and drug use. I wanted illustrate how the lifestyle and culture were so deeply ingrained in all the characters.


This was achieved by adding vain like marks, forming roads out from the main character. The book is loosely based on Jack Kerouac’s own experiences, so I decided to use him as the model for the illustration.
