I'm more than happy to share with you some of the art I did for Missing on Superstition Mountain, a new mystery adventure novel by New York Times bestselling author Elise Broach published by Henry Holt Books for Young Readers. Just a month after its publication the book was chose Best Book of the Year So Far by Amazon.com.
With this job I created not just the cover art but some interior art as well. I love B/W illustration. I did a lot of pencil and ink drawings for comics in the past so every time I have the chance to do interior B/W art I feel lucky. Besides, it gives me the opportunity to further develop the characters, environments and situations I'm portraying in the cover. I used graphite pencils complemented with some digital gray shades and textures. It was a very fun ride, the book has charming characters portrayed with a great sense of humor in a magnificent setting: the Superstition Mountains in Arizona which I hope I will know in person one day.
