Today is technically the last day of winter (I know this because tomorrow is my birthday, the first day of spring, vernal equinox!) so I thought I'd post one last vestige of snow as we move into warmer times. I had fun illustrating Darkbeast last year, and I am happy to show the cover for the sequel Darkbeast Rebellion as well. Similar to the first book, I created this illustration as a wraparound that will extend onto the back cover.
And hey! Look at that, I've updated my website with this and other new work for your viewing pleasure.
Happy to finally show the cover for The Real Boy, my second book with author and fellow cat owner Anne Ursu. The Real Boy is a middle grade novel set entirely in a new fantasy world, and stars Oscar the magician's assistant, and five cats.
I had such a good time working with HarperCollins/Walden Pond Press on Breadcrumbs, that I was super excited to be asked back for Anne's next book. I've written a longer post about the work that went into this cover over here on Nerdy Book Club.
Many thanks to Jordan Brown and Kellie Celia at WPP for their help with everything, and to my wonderful AD on this project- Amy Ryan. Hand drawn type for the cover is by Sarah Hoy.
