Prickle Moon - Book Cover

Recently, author Juliet Marillier got in touch regarding illustrating the cover of an upcoming / yet-to-be-released anthology of short stories, being published by Western Australian publishers, Ticonderoga Publications.

This is the full-wrap cover, though you can see the official front cover here at my Wordpress blog, which also shows a lot of work in progress shots: [link]

Echidnas are very cool and sweet too!

Read your blog entry about this. I love when artists share something about their process.

This is really amazing. It's almost a shame to wrap it around a book because the composition of the whole piece works so well.

I keep coming back to stare at this, time and time again. I am in love with your work. I love the colours here. Everything is just beautiful. Stupendous. Wonderful. Brilliant. It reminds me of the Serendipity books I used to read back in the day. :)
