Landon Snow 3 & 4

Currently reading the third book in the Landon Snow series, Landon Snow and the Island of Arcanum and I am enjoying it. I don't get a manuscript when I illustrate it, I just get a request for a spot, or I get an idea for the cover from the author and publisher so it's fun to finally be able to hold the book, see the whole project come together finally, and actually read it.

What I'm enjoying in this story, in the beginning here, is how the story sets you up to think that certain events are going to take place like in book 1 and book 2, but they don't... not at first, and not in the way you'd expect.

This was probably my favorite cover to do. I did it around this time last year when a terrific ice strom hit Greenville. Power was out at the studio, so I worked from home (somehow my roommate and I had power.)

The head shot of Landon for book 3, I think has turned out to be the best of them:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

And, since I just saw it on, Landon Snow 4 is coming, so I figured it'd be ok to post something here:

Nice illustrations. I know what you mean. There are a lot of books I've illustrated but never read. I'll keep my eyes open for these. I bet my kids would love them.
