I recently did the cover illustrations for a crime novel, the French publisher picked it up and chose my artwork for the  title over the US version that used a photograph. That was a nice little surprise.

It was a good project with the designer going in to bat  and championing my ideas with the marketing people responding positively. her persistence paid off! Thanks Mel! Indeed the ‘sketches’ used for presentation were close to the final artwork so that allowed them to see how  the finished art would be utilized.

Onwards and acrosswards!
