The book cover illustrations for the Fairest Trilogy by Fabian De Sousa. :D
That's one of the moments when I regret I don't get to keep some of my commission works. :D But seeing them on the cover of a book makes that instantly better again. :D

Book 1 available for purchase here:

Those illustrations, too, look beautiful :). I just had a look at the etsy-page you linked - they finished covers and the interiors shown on the photographs look wonderful!
Um - why do you not keep them? I read that the book is made in Australia, do you ship them all the way there (as far as I remember, you were not from Australia)?

Thank you! :D

The author bought not just the right to use the artworks, but the artworks too. He's now having a whole wall of chapter artworks and still a bunch of frames that are just waiting to be filled with more. So, yes, I'm sending the originals away, which sometimes hurts a bit. But hey, he loves them, so I think I can live with parting from them. :D

The middle one stumps me.... which is it from? (and no kidding here, the first thing I thought when I saw that middle one was Winnie the Pooh :XD::XD:)

.... XD
Thank you! The middle one is an adult little red riding hood meeting an enchanted bear in the forest. :D

Ah, I see. Shows how little I remember about fairy tales that the only thing I remember about Hood is her, her grandma, and the wolf ^^; (or maybe the bear really isn't part of the original? I guess it's wiki trip time :XD:)

Stunning work you did here! It all works so well together! :heart:

But what do you mean, you don't get to keep the originals?
drachenmagier's avatar
Thank you! :D
Well, in this case it's a commission and the originals as well as the shipping are paid for. :) By now they are already on the other side of the planet. :D

You're welcome!

Ah, I see, that makes sense. I hope they are in good hands! ;)
