Emily Windsnap: Tells Her "Tail"

Every once in a while, I like to design cover illustrations for some of my favorite books. I did these two illustrations for the whimsical series, Emily Windsnap by Liz Kessler. I fell in love with mermaids after watching Disney's The Little Mermaid. The idea of being able to have both legs and fins like Emily would be great fun!

 In addition to paper cut art, I also enjoy doing digital painting. I like to base my digital work on color and shapes but the one thing I like the most about working digitally is the play between light and texture.

 I then like to add type and graphics to see what the piece would look like if use as a product. Adding typography to the illustrations gives them a completed look...like when you frame a piece of art work. It brings the piece to another level.
