The Mage Chronicles ~ cover art & design for RJ Eliason (@racheleliason)



I love desert landscapes. Every one is so alike, yet each unique at the same time.. There's just something romantic, and barren, and harsh about them. I relished another opportunity…

Steampunk and Its Props

Is this video Steampunk? It has punks, though it lacks steam (and the ending is maybe a bit saccharine).

Question, Queries and Posers

It has been suggested that I should sell my hats. The problem is that I have absolutely no idea what to charge for them. The hats themselves are costume hats and the embellishments on them I had either made or purchased at retail. So my questions are, hypothetically speaking, if you were in the market for a hat such as these, how much would you be willing to pay for them? Basically, based off of what I do, what would you all consider to be fair market value for…

Murder in Belgrave Square ~ cover art and design for Tim Lewis (@TimLewisAuthor)

I'm such a kid, sometimes. I really do enjoy creating book covers for children, especially the reluctant reader ages between seven and eighteen. Luckily for me, the Intermediate Reader - New Adult genres are booming right now, so I'm getting a lot of fun cover projects. :DI actually finished this cover months ago, but didn't have a blurb to post with it until now, so I held off showing it off.Blurb: January,…See More
