I recently completed a couple of book covers for talented author Christina “DZA” Marie
The first book – “Gary the Gecko’s Guide to Getting Your Humans to Get Together and Other Short Stories” – is a cute collection of tall tales for kids. The cover features the eponymous Gary with some of his friends from the pet shop. This cover came together pretty quickly, as right from the start Christina had a very clear idea of what she wanted – namely Gary, surrounded by books.
The second book was “The Minnesotan Witch”, which tells the story of a young agent for the U.S. Department of Fae and Magical Creatures sent to investigate strange goings-on in Minnesota. I loved the premise of this story, and was super happy with the final cover, after trying several different ideas out initially.
It was fantastic fun working with Christina. She’s a great lady with lots of cool ideas and if you get the chance you should pay a visit to her website, Dragons, Zombies and Aliens – and don’t forget to download the Gary the Gecko and Minnesotan Witch ebooks!
