Sea Witch by escume Sea Witch by escume

Everyone knows what happens in the end
A mermaid, a prince, a true love’s kiss.
But before that young siren’s tale, there were three friends.
One feared, one royal, and one already dead.

It was a blast crafting a cover for the upcoming Sarah Henning novel, Sea Witch! The classic Hans Christian Anderson tale is re-imagined through the perspective of Evie. The rise of this iconic villainess is a heart-wrenching story of friendship, betrayal, and a girl pushed beyond her limits - to become a monster.

Sea Witch comes out in July 2018 from HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen. Pre-order information coming soon! To receive updates and exclusive content, check out the website and  learn more on goodreads.

This is beautiful!!!
I was sold on the book by the cover alone. 
However... The Australian cover has a different image... >.>

I’m in love with the original picture. From the story’s perspective, it makes sense you painted her looking younger. Love!!!
You are an amazing artist!!!
