Book cover illustration for Masked by G.A. Finocchiaro

I am thrilled to have been commissioned again by G.A. Finocchiaro to illustrate a book cover illustration for a rom-com spin-off from his main series: Masked. Finocchiaro describes it as a bit of a palette cleanser from his usual darker fantasy and we both knew that we wanted the cover to reflect this diversion.

For Masked, the cover focuses on a portrait of one of the main characters (rather than a full or partial figure) with the typography integrated into the conceptual design as a literal “mask” over her eyes. The bright colors provide a fun “pop” in contrast to the dark palette of his current main series. This was a fun, collaborative process and we are really happy with the results!

Here is a brief description of the book, which will be released in September:

“In a world where the line between super and supervillain blurs with televised news, two lost souls are caught in a bank-heist blunder. […] The only thing scarier than being hunted by supers, supervillains, and vigilantes, is letting themselves be vulnerable.

MASKED is a super-herom-com with a satirical punch—bang—pow!”

I hired Rachel for a small project for a big client. I needed my small team of artists to knock it out of the park, and Rachel absolutely did. She communicated well, consistently, and on time. She took feedback, asked great questions, and delivered on time every week. The client was nothing short of blown away by her work and loved working with her. I will try to hire Rachel again for whatever opportunity comes next, you should too.
