When Rigoli and I started writing together, I’d create cover art. It helped to make the writing—our books—feel real. Though there are maybe forty or so finished covers that were never used, some of my original art holds a special place in my heart. They serve as a reminder of the hours, and layers, that were spent dreaming and making art.
For lack of an actual title, the Green Mask (see in this post) was my original idea for our last book, Green, in the Scale of Elements series. This was before we knew where we were going in the series, so it was never used. There are many, many layers to the image, and I love how it turned out.
Rigoli & I are thinking about putting a book of all our art we’ve done for the series along the way as a gift to our fans.
