New Jackets

Here are a couple new jacket paintings. One is the third jacket in a series called the Century Books and should be coming out soon (The purple one). The other is for a book I can't talk about yet. I am still working on this one, but very excited on how it is coming out.
I have been extremely busy lately, getting ready for a couple of art exhibitions, and finishing up a couple of books, as well as working on the cover for the new Kane Chronicles book, by Rick Riordan.
Things should slow down for me around April of next year. Then I think I might work on my next picture book using traditional media (watercolor) and put the computer away for a while.
