Creating the Art for Cat Hellisen’s “Mother, Crone, Maiden”

Creating the art for Cat Hellisen‘s story, “Mother, Crone, Maiden“, was a bit of a challenge. Full of intense, risky visuals, it proved rather difficult to choose some over others. It took one or two days just to come up with thumbnails, a process that normally takes a few hours.

Creating the Art for Marissa Meyer’s “Glitches”

This project starts with me busting my knee in a climbing acident. Irene Gallo, art director for Tor Books and creative director for Tor.com, called me for a project during Thanksgiving week and, truth be told, I wasn’t going anywhere for a while; so why not work on an illustration for a wicked story?

That story is “Glitches” written by Marissa Meyer. It is a prequel to her book upcoming debut novel, Cinder.
