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!”
