My Bio

I am a self-taught digital artist who started manipulating by using Microsoft Paint. I later discovered GIMP, and PhotoShop Elements before being given Photoshop as a gift from a supporter.

My artist name comes from when I was a DJ on an internet radio station.

I am also a published author! My literature works are located on Amazon and Kindle for purchase, under author ML Wissing. (one is listed under "M L Wissing" for some reason and Amazon won't fix it)

Keep in touch; I'm on facebook as well!

My artworks are NOT STOCK! Please respect my artwork and do not steal or use in other art pieces!

How long have you been creating book covers? I started photo-manipulating in 2006, using Microsoft paint, and doing changes pixel-by-pixel. I discovered GIMP, and later on a follower of mine gave me Photoshop Elements. I've used Photoshop exclusively ever since. I'd say I've been creating art specifically for book covers since around 2009-ish. How many of your artworks are made just for covers? I have over a thousand art pieces currently in my gallery, I would say over two hundred or more are specifically book covers, though I have turned a few of the photomanipulations into book covers as well. Wow, that is a lot! How many of your covers are out on books now? Currently, there are nine: Fragments by ML Wissing To Hell and Back: The Darkness Calls, Book 1 by ML Wissing and Amber NP Mays The Game by ML Wissing Healing Words, a Journey through the Ladder Upp (an anthology with Silouan Green) The Journey series by Amber NP Mays (two of the three books are

Describe an image that you'd like to see into art, and if I make it I will not only post it, I will send you a digital file and a letter from my studio so you can print it out to hang! If possible I may even skip the digital file and send you a signed print!
