I am happy to have beat the December 31 deadline but it was a bit grueling. Here are all eight covers for the little readers. The titles are Top Secret, but I was allowed to show these off. Next to do are the interior illustrations once the texts for the stories are finalized. I’m waiting for editorial comments to create the first storyboards.
Illustrators who regularly design book covers for unfinished books are to be admired! Perhaps authors disappointed in their covers will understand how this process works at times. The marketing team wants something they can sell long before the book is produced, so the art department does what it can. I know one illustrator on this project had nothing but a title to work with. Yikes!
