Added four new covers!

A little preview:


I just had to pop in here and let everyone who needs an illustrator know that Alberto is AMAZING to work with! You see those two covers above, in the middle? They're my partner's, and they're beautiful online and in print.

But don't take me too seriously, because my partner still needs him, ok? ;)

    Great looking art. I am definitely going to keep you in mind for some upcoming books.

    A little preview:


    I already commented that my experience with Alberto went well, but I should also add that the cover on the far right (which is mine) was on my collection that recently hit the USA Today bestseller list. So not only did he do a great job, but it also sold books, which is, you know, fairly important.  ;)

    Oh, and I've created a paperback, which printed great, along with free bookmarks/postcards (I don't sell them; I'm not sure if the licensing agreement covers that - if you're going to create store merch, ask) from the art that I give to fans (which they enjoy). The illustrations look really sharp in print. The illustration he sent is 7490 x 4682 and 300 DPI, so that's not a surprise, but if anyone was planning on printing items, they all look great and the illustration should print cleanly without loss of fidelity.

    Anyway, my high recommendation obviously stands. Just thought I'd mention those points!

    Thanks for your kind words! I'm happy to hear that the sale of the book series went well and that the prints work!  :D

    ahah Thank you again, Colleen! There is no greater satisfaction than to receive such praise from my clients.  8)

    Now it's been over a year since I joined kboards and I wanted to thank you all for the support and for the great work we've done!
    I hope this second year is even better! Thanks again to everyone!

    (Sorry if I do not thank you individually but you are really too many and I'm not very good with long-winded speeches.)

    Finally, here are a couple of covers that can come out! :D
