Young adult book cover art: The Opal Amulet
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Rachel George | Share link:

A recent cover I illustrated and designed for The Opal Amulet, a young adult novel about a young teen girl navigating high school and finding out her ‘normal’ life is actually hiding more than a few magical mysteries.

The client approached me seeking my illustration and my design and layout services. My usual process – once I’ve established who the target audience of the book is – is to provide a few mockup/thumbnail sketches for the client to review and discuss what they like/don’t like and build from there.

With this particular cover I had a blast illustrating the looming dragon figure and adding little details around the background from the story, like a forest that features in the early stages of the book.
