Here’s the cover art illustration for the book “The Grass Sweeper God” by the writer Dough Howery (self release, June 2014). This has been one of the wildest commissions I have ever had, as I had the challenge to depict a gay boy in a girl’s blouse being raped/beaten almost to death in a graveyard, with the fire spirit of a woman ascending from the tombstone next to him, and try to connect both characters somehow. This has its logic in the book, of course 🙂
But in the end I really enjoyed the process of this one. Had a fun vintage-shopping afternoon for some of the props I need for the photo-session and everything else came smoothly.
