new cover for LoPM
I just finished working on a new cover for tinabot's The Legend of Phoenix Mountain. I was very inspired by old Chinese sumi-e painting and the illustrations you often find in old editions of famous wuxia novels. At the same time, tinabot wanted the emphasis to be on the fusion of two cultures - Chinese and American, old and new, etc. So the result became something of a mix between sumi-e landscape paintings and classic fantasy imagery.
We will be promoting LoPM, along with Snowball and many other newly published work, at the Festival of the Books @ USC end of April. Stay tuned for more info!
