This was my first book cover. I made the whole thing myself, including the drawing. I’d never done a project that ambitious before. I’m not actually an artist, so I basically blundered my way through by trial and error. I don’t personally know any drawing techniques, so I have to find a drawing similar to what I want to make and copy their methods. It took forever. I think I spent as much time on the cover as I did writing the book (that’s not a joke).
But I learned a lot by doing this. If I did it over again, I could probably do a much better job. I like the cartoonish quality of this illustration though. It suits the subject matter.
