Ripple Effect cover art and illustrations [Feb. 1st, 2010|02:46 am]
[Tags|, ]

Last year I did the cover for Tears of the Phoenix's book, "Ripple Effect" which was published to help rebuild the libraries in New Orleans that were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. I also illustrated two of the stories included in the book.

The completed cover with titles and text:

Those are wonderful, I especially love the book cover and the girl with the unicorn. The last one is suitably spooky! I very much like the book titles!!!

Thank you, sweetie!! ^.^ The zombie one with the books was really a lot of fun to draw. I'm so glad you liked them! ♥

And I'm so pleased you've friended me here! I'm planning to mirror most of my posts here, except for H/D - so you might prefer to defriend the other journal. Totally up to you! :)

Oh, no! I would never defriend you, wherever you post. I like all your art and it doesn't matter to me what the subject is, I don't care whether it is fanart, H/D or original art and I wouldn't like to miss anything! :D

And btw, your H/D art is always so lovely and charming, I don't mind seeing it at all. It's just the overly "adult" H/D fandom corner that I needed to leave.

*hugs back tightly* You're so very welcome!

*grins* It was real fun to draw this little kid. My students often look like that at the moment. (I mean the missing tooth. ;D)

Your art is just beautiful and I can't believe how "real" the water looks. Congrats

Thank you so much, dear!! *hugs* And thank you for friending me! This is where I'm going to post my original work, but I'll be linking it to my other journal too. If it seems to be too much repetition, please don't worry about defriending one or the other. :)

These are beautiful! I love the first one. The ripple effect is so cool.
I love the last one. You made her creepy but it's so subtle. It's very neat :D
