This is cover art I did for the Long Hidden Anthology: Speculative Fiction From the Margins of History www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

I wanted it to kind of look like this area had been submerged for a long time but was just recently drained out (either through a mechanism or through magic), revealing hidden monuments and a path for the group to use to escape the burning city in the background.

I just keep thinking about what to say about your art, but I just can't organize whats going through my head to write it down.

Great cover for a great anthology! I was so pleased when I heard that you were going to be the cover artist, and it wound up looking fantastic.

Lovely, strong, bold colours! Exciting scene, and I love how we are behind this big wall, makes me to want to open the book so that I can see more of whats going on here!

This cover all on its own makes me want to buy the anthology. It makes me want to know more about the people and definitely more about the city and its ancient mechanisms and purpose, as well as makes me curious about what other stories on the same theme might be hidden in the book. :+fav:

Wow, what a beautiful picture, and the illustration book WIPS you posted are amazing too.

When do you think your book will be for sale?

It'll depend on how quickly I can get the artwork done while working around my commission work schedule, but I'm aiming for early summer. I'll be posting more solid updates as the work nears completion. :)

Hi Julie, thank you for letting me know! I'm excited about the art book. I'll keep my eyes open for news on it!

Oh, and you take commissions? Where can I read your commission info?

Gorgeous! I love that the child in front is carrying a book. The body language of the people gives a great sense of emotional stress and rapid movement.

I favorite'd this piece a while back. I was sifting through my watched deviation stack and I noticed the profile of a face on the opening the people are running through I had not noticed before. Very clever. Simply gorgeous!
