What I've Done
I have worked on 200+ illustrations, including multiple-award-winning and bestselling designs. I have worked with wonderful clients such as Leia Stone, Miranda Honfleur, Frost Kay, Laura Thalassa, Melissa Storm, Thea Harrison, Logan Keys, and Eva Chase.
A Cover's Purpose
Creating a cover that appeals to new readers is the primary goal of a cover. With that comes my creativity and your general overview of needed elements. My understanding of the current market and what reader's seek is the guiding factor and direction your cover will take.
After my offer is accepted, I will begin to work on an initial mockup for you to review. The mockup will have the primary elements, but not be a polished piece of work, Instead at this stage you may let me know of anything major needing revision. After finalizing the major elements, I move onto the final artwork. Covers have three revisions included if needed, and given after the remaining 50% balance is paid for on the project. If you need further add-ons, you are welcome to always contact me.
