2 covers for Hot Key Books! Hot Key is a UK publisher that specializes in fiction for 9-19 year old readers (and uses a lot of illustrated covers to boot!) Fearsome Dreamer came out last year, and I recently finished up the cover for its sequel, The Illusionists, this year, both written by Laure Eve. Both take place in a dystopian future with a distinctive mix of technology, magic, reality/dreams, (and romance!) centered around the heroine, Rue.
Hot Key had a pretty defined idea of what they wanted for each cover—Rue in the center standing wrapped in a future flag in the ruins of a stone square, and Rue facing forward, pushing open heavy doors with “Life” glitching out behind her. I was happy to oblige, and really like the mint & pink color combo we decided on!
It’s been a lot of fun to work on, with many thanks due to my dynamic duo of art directors, Jan Bielecki & Jet Purdie!

bird ownership in a nutshell
I have wanted to make an animated illustration since, about, a million years ago.
Hey, wow, this is my 7,777th post.

Took so many hours.
Something I started last year. Really wanted to finish this one!

because they are shitheads

God, today really sucked a lot. But weirdly enough it made me super productive when I got home. I cleaned the birdcage, vacuumed my room, did a HIIT and half an hour of Zumba and I’m helping avoxsus make dinner now.
I need to make it a priority to not leave the house without healthy snacks though… being really hungry all day today didn’t put me in a very good mood to handle everything that happened.
