The Book of Bad Things
Cover illustration for Dan Poblocki's The Book of Bad Things, published by Scholastic Press and Art Directed by the awesome Chris Stengel.
It goes without saying that these covers are always incredibly fun to work on. The top image is the official cover and the bottom image is one of the initial comps that I thought was fun too.
A book jacket illustration from a series that unfortunately didn’t make it to final. We spent a lot of time and energy on the covers for this series but, alas, they didn’t quite make it.
I also included (bottom image) the first comp I did for this cover so you can see the progress from initial comp to final.
Lost on a Mountain in Maine
Book jacket illustration—and two initial comps that I thought looked neat—for Lost on a Mountain in Maine by Donn Fendler and Joseph B. Egan, published by HarperCollins and Art Directed by the fabulous Sarah Kaufman. This book tells the true story of Donn Fendler who was separated from his family at the age of twelve for nine days on Maine’s Mount Katahdin. It’s an amazing story and you can read more about it here on Wikipedia.
