• The Love Interest

    In Work on

    Here’s a new cover I illustrated for Feiwel & Friends for the book cover The Love Interest. This piece was a little unusual in that the art director already had a cover mocked up and just needed me to come in to refine certain details and give it my stylistic flair. All in all, a quick, fun assignment. The Love Interest comes out May 16, 2017.
