The Curse of Maleficent - Full Wraparound Cover

It's Official!

This is the unadorned full cover art for a book I just finished illustrating for Disney: The Curse of Maleficent, a tie-in YA novel for the upcoming movie! The book is up for pre-order on Amazon, and will be out at the end of the month. The final hardcover has 25 full-color interior illustrations that I'll be sharing some of as well. Such a blessing to be able to work on this- I hope you guys like it!…

I miss deviantart a little- I mean, I haven't left, but it seems like the party is moving to tumblr a lot these days. More pics and chatter up there if you like-…
 but thanks for watching and sticking around! This is going to be a big month for me- more art REAL soon :D

Beautifully done. Your style suits this story very very well.

What program do you use? I'd like to get into digital art. Is there something that you can do with just a mouse?

I don't have a special pen thingy.

WOW! This is so beautiful! I love the warm glow around Aurora and the fairies and other woodland creatures, and how it contrasts with Maleficent in the darkness. You have a wonderful art style, and I can't wait until the book comes out so I can check out more of it!
