Client: Elizabeth Gaines Johnston, Author Design Challenge: Original illustrations for 3 book covers that MUST match the story. Must not be “cookie cutter publisher design” and must stand out on the shelves in a bookstore. A fun aspect of the project was getting inside the author’s head to “see” her vision and illustrate the book covers of a Fantasy Adventure Trilogy for GildedSerpents.com. The first book, Dragon’s Gift was published in 2010 and sold well. So now the whole trilogy is available!
Book One Dragon’s Gift, of the Gilded Serpents Trilogy is a thrilling tale of intrigue and adventure, complete with faeries, demons, mystical pendants and dragons. Book Two Magic’s Price, continues the adventures of Princess Kwyleeana and her entourage as they battle a dark secret. Book three War’s Toll, is the final thrilling tale of an evil brother, wars and a magic pendant. Get yours now.
I particularly enjoy doing this kind of project because books are mobile, are carried out into various places where people gather, or in homes where friends visit. My art and designs are everywhere!
