Can I Sit With You? Cover by *DivaLea This hand-made sculptured illustration will be the cover on a book about negotiating school. Its so fantastic detailed and deals with a delicate matter with so much heart. The amount of detail really pulls you into that world and the pose of the bald girl gives it so much intimacy.

Can I Sit With You? Cover

The finished cover for a great new book, Can I Sit With You? CISWY is a collection of stories about negotiating school, both the good times and bad.
All profits go to SEPTAR, a first-ever Special Education PTA in California.
Can I Sit With You?
You can read some of the stories that willbe in the book!

This is my first ever sculpture illustration. I expect there will be more.

Kato Polyclay, cardboard, tree cut from outside specimen, silk leaves, peat moss from a bag that's been in my yard for two years, many other found objects, fabrics, and wool.
The clothes were hand-sewn on to the dolls, and used patterns I made myself.

i love this so much, and i think the music i'm listening to (dan deacon- pink batman) is just making it seem more alive, like a movie or a scene from a trailer that just makes you feel something.

I like that the graffiti on the fence makes it look like the white girl has wings.

Wow. Very sober, and really sends a message to the observer. Makes you think.

Well done!

Great cover! Really conveys a sense of melancholy and isolation. The angel wings on the fence behind is a great touch... that must've been tricky to line up.
