Night Film

I have decided to do my Drop Cap from the book I just finished call Night Film by Marisha Pessel. 

I'm going to use the P

Description of the book from chapters website: 

"On a damp October night, the body of young, beautiful Ashley Cordova is found in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. By all appearances her death is a suicide--but investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. Though much has been written about the dark and unsettling films of Ashley''s father, Stanislas Cordova, very little is known about the man himself. As McGrath pieces together the mystery of Ashley''s death, he is drawn deeper and deeper into the dark underbelly of New York City and the twisted world of Stanislas Cordova, and he begins to wonder--is he the next victim?"

My thoughts so far:

New York

Witchcraft

Ashley

Cordova

3 wives

Scott Mchrath 

Nora

Hopper 

Tattoo

Piano

Kirin ( japenese mythological creature, more powerful than dragons or phoenix, it's protector, head of a dragon, body of a deer, covered with scales of a fish or dragon, legs of a horse, tail of a bull, antlers or single horns). 

Priest

Devils bridge

Mental Hospital 

Dark

Creepy

The Peak

Mermaids

Magical

DO YOU DARE

Red 

Jacket

Thinking of incoporating the tattoo, kirin, mermaid and red into the letter P

So here are my rough sketches for what I want to do 

Since they use american typewrite I was thinking of using that P as its shape and then the phrase do you dare which was something that was said a lot will make up the P in red which is the colour of the jacket that she wore

Also was thinking of use a script P and the bottom would be a mermaid tail 

The last idea I had was also using a script P and having the different characteristics of a KIRIN which was a tattoo that she had 

The p has a bit of a antler to it 

Let me know your thoughts ... thanks so much :)

Ok here is 3 versions to choose from: 

It has a mermaid tail and the rest of the p is aspects of the Kirin 

Let me know your thoughts 

Thank you :)
