I haven't been able to post much artwork on the blog lately, but believe me I have been drawing every. Single. Day. Some of it is a new project that I'm really excited about but can't share online just yet. Hopefully soon!
In the meantime, I realized that I never showed off this 12-book cozy mystery series for which I did all the cover illustrations. I've showed a few of the covers on this blog, but not the entire series altogether. This is the Mysteries Unraveled series from Annie's Publishing.
It may not be as dramatic as my Bible illustration commemorative photo, but still it's satisfying to see all these covers collected in one place. I didn't realize until I saw them all together that they ended up with a really consistent green-purple color scheme!
I was right out of art school when Annie's Publishing contacted me about doing this series. I had never even heard of the "cozy mystery" genre before. I was extremely lucky to have such a patient, communicative, and kind publisher as my first client. They give me a LOT of artistic freedom and that makes it fun. I've done over 30 book covers with them now. In fact, by the end of the year I will have finished all the covers for a 24-book series, the "Amish Inn Mysteries"! And yes you BET I will line up all the books and take a photo when it's finished. That's kind of my thing now, I guess.
