I just noticed the a book I did a cover for last year has been released! Working with Harper Collins was fun. Probably the hardest part for me was hitting the right look for the target audience, as I don't exactly have a thumb on the pulse of the "tween" fiction market. So I just went for something more realistic than my usual, but that still had some fun and imagination to it. In retrospect I should have hired some models instead of trying to work out of my head, but I still wouldn't want to lose that that slightly skewed, almost carictured look.
I read an early draft of the book before starting the illustration, and I enjoyed it in spite of my out-of-touch-ness. If you want a copy, you can see it here.
