I am at last able to start showcasing a series of book covers created over the last twelve months or so. This is the first of a trilogy of covers painted in acrylics for the very successful Azure Blue series by A. L. Hawke.
I have had a huge amount of fun working on this project which draws on ancient Greek myth and legend with contemporary overtones. Not only did I get a lot out of producing the illustrations I also learned a lot about the indie publishing side of the business and a bit of cartography as well as I was enlisted to craft the world maps too, I have included one of those here.
The video is a breakdown of my process so I hope that you enjoy it :).
