Book cover art for Call of the Rift: Crest
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Simon Carr | Share link:

Last year I was lucky enough to be asked to create the cover art for the 3rd book in the Call of the Rift series entitled ‘Crest’, by Jae Waller. This cover illustration presented a few challenges – unusual lighting, an enormous volcanic cavern with a lake, and a glowing tree to name a few. Consequently I went ahead and did quite a bit more research than I would have normally. I’m happy with the final result, satisfied that I was able to solve the numerous visual problems and I think I created a compelling illustration as well.

Over the course of several series books, Simon has been an absolute pleasure to work with — he’s talented, professional, and detailed. He deftly translates entirely imagined worlds into amazing works of art that make those worlds real on the covers of our books. His talent speaks for itself in his portfolio and I would recommend him to anyone looking to work with an expert in character and scene illustration.
