Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters

This is a bit different from my usual work. The art director, Doogie Horner, is a super-nice guy and had seen some of the oil paintings that I do in my personal time. He was kind enough to offer me the opportunity to do this book cover. I enjoy costume dramas, classical painting techniques, and monsters, so this was a rare opportunity indeed.

I heartily recommend Doogie's blog. He is hilarious and freakishly multi-talented.


  1. I was reading this book the other day, I remember that upon seeing it I wondered who illustrated the cover, later on I stumbled onto this blog :)
    I love your work.

  2. Thanks so much for the kind words! I appreciate it.
