This year I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work with Stone Table Books on some front covers.
Two of those books are to be launched soon. So I have permission to showcase the art here.
This illustration was done for the cover art of Lizzy’s Dragon written by Melissa Gijsbers. It is a lovely little mid-range reader about a little girl who discovers a dragon who can breath water instead of fire.
I loved the opportunity to illustrate such a beautiful coloured dragon. And on the front cover when printed, this just pops, so I’m really happy with how it turned out.
This illustration is for the cover art of the book Hidden written by Sif Dal – a young adults adventure that reminded me a lot of what I used to read when I as a teenager, so I quite enjoyed the story. It was really a treat to illustrate the book, hopefully I did it justice.
It’s really an honour to be entrusted with the chance to illustrate a front cover of a book. As an author myself, I know how important front covers are, so I really hope to do something beautiful for both the author and the publisher.
If you get the chance, check out the books, they’re both really wonderful.
Keep well, dearest readers!
