Well, fun story. I was hired by a woman to due the cover art and all illustrations on the interior of her upcoming novel. She said it was going to help rape victims and serve as an act of God. Well, I finally listened to the audio book. I could see past the constant surprisingly extremely graphic rape scenes, but the homophobic ‘pray the gay away’ content, well, needless to say I could not be part of in good concious, let alone mildly wanted to hit the book with several bricks, then casually light on fire. Needless to say, I turned the offer down unless the homophobic content was removed entirely. Wellp, the woman instead said she’d use my cover regardless no matter what I said or did.
She definitely does not have consent to use any of these, but here’s a look at them anyway.
Fleshed out the cover a bit.
Here’s where it started.
Here’s where it is. Any feedback, suggestions are always welcome.
And a couple of the sketches for the interior:
And one dead owl.
More to come. Thanks for lookin’.
