I wanted to make sure everyone knew that the primary young woman in Life as a Ghost was plain, introverted, and didn't really care what other people thought. (2007)
Really there are more women out there that fall into this category than you'd believe.
Yet, there is a scene where Storm, our protagonist, puts a red hyacinth in her hair. So I wanted to include that bright pop into the cover.
Also I wanted something far simpler. Having a simple cover allows for the highlightingof the most important pieces. For this one, the bright eyes, the bright flower, and fading away. (2009)
The original drawing was just that: colorless and had more of the contours of the face and it's shape. The trimmed down version has far more impact.
Then came the color. That red flower and those soft blue eyes with nothing to distract from a young woman staring straight into your heart.
