Book Cover

I have now officially illustrated a book cover.

A friend of mine contacted me saying that her father had written an autobiography and was looking for someone to illustrate the cover.  The book will be called, “Saved by Elvis” since one of the pivotal moments in the author’s life is when he fell into a well on his grandmother’s property and disappeared into the darkness.  Only his Uncle Elvis saw him running one moment and vanished the next.

The cover illustrates the moment when Uncle Elvis reaches into the broken earth to pull him out.

I have to go back in and clean it up a little before I send it off, but the good news is he liked it!

You’ll have to imagine what it looks like with the title and his name in red.  I hope I get a copy when it’s printed!

    So different from your normal style. That had to be a challenge for you. I really like it!

      It wasn’t too hard! It’s always nice to be forced to change up familiar styles and patterns.
