Elder Magic Book Cover Finished!!... and some other stuff


The third and final painting for Cindy Davis and John Richters' Elder Magic, Book three of the Desert Magic Trilogy is now finished! The second book just came out to purchase, so this one will be out sometime this Winter. You can read more about the trilogy at the Desert Magic website here. You can read the first two books Healing Magic and Stolen Magic by purchasing them at Amazon!


Some of the fun of being an illustrator is the anticipation and waiting for certain books to hit the shelves and finally get a chance to peek at the beautiful cover art that was selected by the publishers. A while ago I blogged about doing some speculation work for Raven Tree Press for a picture book. They asked a number of other illustrators as well as myself to send in cover art and a sketch for one of the spreads after sending us a manuscript. After finding out I wasn't selected I had to wait almost a year to see the cover art and artist that was finally chosen for the picture book. Here it is! Seed Was Planted will be out this September and was beautifully illustrated by Pamela Barcita. Congratulations!!
