This project began a couple years ago. I was introduced to Orlando Jaime by illustrator Alexis Moniello, and I was given the opportunity to read the first book in a series he was beginning. I'm a fan of fantasy fiction and loved the story. Late in 2018, Orlando called and asked if I would do the cover illustration for the book. This is the result. Such a great challenge to try and capture the characters, environments and feelings that reside in someone else's head. Who knew castle architecture would be something I'd get comfortable with?
