Starting to work on book covers as self promotion to send to local book publishers. This cover is for Sabriel by Garth Nix. I was trying to capture the monster of Kerrigor with rough brayer strokes to create an uneven black shape.
Playing around with brush lettering this week. It's pretty fun and not too difficult to do. I found some tutorials on youtube that I have been watching. I use a portable water brush and watercolors to create my brush lettering. Some of the tutorials I watched use a brush marker pen, but I like the variation in color that you get with the watercolor.
Excited to share my illustrations in print! Above is my illustration for The Progressive. Below is my illustration for Spirituality & Health. It's cool to see them in context with the written articles.
