I was hesitant to take this project on when the author told me he would like to see a fight scene. Having never illustrated a fight scene of any kind, I told him I’d give it a try and if he didn’t like it, we could always try something else. But he liked it! The entire cover is illustrated and digitally painted with a texture added in so the ground didn’t look so blah. A fun cover for a middle grade book. 2012.
