Book Cover Illustration for The White Lilac

Here’s the cover illustration I created for Christina J. Adams’ new science fiction novel The White Lilac.

Book Cover Illustration: Under the Triple Suns

I’ve been busy updating my book cover illustration portfolio (or perhaps “art galleries” is a better term for the maze of pictures I’ve created). “Under the Triple Suns” is an illustration aimed at rounding out my portfolio just a bit. As such it’s also a speculative “book cover” that as yet doesn’t have a client […]

Book Illustrations from Sketch Rejections
