This is some older illustration work that I have enjoyed doing for author Sandra Baumgärtner.

Since I work on Book 4 right now, the series is still going and therefore relevant to me.
I hope the breakdown of the process below and the coherence of the visual style throughout the series blows away any doubt you might have in hiring a professional illustrator for your next book cover project ;)

My work involved doing the conceptional aspect, the typography, the pre-press design work, wrap around layout, bookmark designs, we-bbanner design, businesscard design and some other promotional work related to the book art.
