Cover for the 4th book in the Children of the Desert series by Leona Wisoker. I needed to convey the main character in a way I thought would really tie into the title and capture the spirit of the book. For inspiration I turned to the romantics and orientalists. Frederic Leighton’s Flaming June was my ultimate inspiration. Working in the studio was a blast to get the references for the blowing fabric. We almost took out the wind machine with some loose fabric, yikes!
