An Appeal

Hello everyone. For the first time I’m making an open appeal to readers for help. I have a book in the works, which is approaching the end of its editing process. I’m hoping to publish it soon, but there’s only one problem: I don’t have a cover. You can’t sell a book without a cover; that’s what people judge them by.

So I am putting out an appeal to any readers who are artists or who can put me into contact with artists who would be interested in a commission job.

I have an idea of what I want in terms of the actual image and lay out, but stylistically I’m looking for something rather after the fashion of the following:

I.e. Stylistic, stark colors and shapes, and heavy shadows.

If you are interested, or know of anyone who might be, leave a comment below.

Thanks everyone!

UPDATE: That was fast. Found someone and we’re negotiating price / concepts. Thanks everyone!

  1. Gregory Dees does very good drawings; you can find them on his site (Neon Seed Studios), his Facebook page, or his Etsy store. I don’t know if he does anything like the pictures you have here, and I’m not sure if he takes commissions, but he has painted large murals in the past. He may be interested in designing a book cover – especially if it is for a sci-fi/fantasy novel.
