‘Bugstown’ Gila Basalo
Posted 5 years ago and submitted by Alex McArdell | Share link: http://illo.cc/54374


Here’s my latest children’s book cover for author Gila Basolo’s “Bugstown”.

This piece was quite challenging due to the many layers and the depth of field I was trying to capture, but I’m really happy with how it turned out. Gila is also very satisfied thankfully!

The full uncropped version isn’t very web friendly due to it’s odd dimensions and website restrictions, so please excuse any pixelation. You can see it in all it’s high def glory once it’s released and ready for purchase!

"I CAN NOT WAIT for you to see the cover illustration (Alex did) for the next Jackson Speed novel. It is glorious. When my youngest son saw the first draft of the cover, he said, “You’re going to have to write a better book to go with that cover.”
