7 Illustrations Looking for a Book or Magazine Cover

I recently created several new illustrations each of which I hope will soon find a home on a magazine or book cover. It seems that I’m often able to spread my wings a little extra bit on these do-it-yourself digital paintings, allowing my imagination to wander where it happens to lead, with some often happily […]
