Spin the Dawn
New book cover for "Spin the Dawn," written by Elizabeth Lim! It's a magical story that follows young Maia as she competes to become the new imperial tailor, and finds herself fighting all odds on the re-imagined Silk Road. The book is set to release next year.

Getting to play around with traditional Chinese fabric and garments made this project worthwhile. Huge thank-you to AD Alison Impey (Penguin Random House)!

I'm starting up a Patreon! With this, I'll be able to offer you a closer look at my painting process with exclusive behind-the-scene images, time-lapse recordings, material lists, and other perks!

The Storm Crow
Book cover for Kalyn Josephson's #TheStormCrow, which is a new YA fantasy novel coming out next summer! It tells the story of the tropical kingdom of Rhodaire, magical crows & crow riders, and a courageous seventeen-year-old girl's plight to win back her kingdom when the Illucian Empire invades.

I loved reading the manuscript and am looking forward to the release! Thanks, AD Nicole Hower (Source Books), for making my job so easy.
