Mikey's Art

After a long trying morning of not being able to post, I managed to get a hold of someone who helped me through it! Thank you Dark UFO!

Anyway, back to the post. I met with Mike who will be the designer of my book cover and map last Monday, and I have to say I am very excited! In fact, I think he is too. After I explained that not only do I want him to design the first book cover, but I have other books coming and a trailer and a web site and a fan page, I asked if he wanted to be a part of it all, and he said Yes!

He loved the idea of drawing fantasy art and from what I have seen of his talent, he will be great at it. We discussed the world I have created and the races of this world and he seemed truly fascinated. He is all for it! 

So, on that note, I believe the art of my series and social media sites will be awesome in every respect. 

Mike is a wonderful artist, and the thing is, I've known him for years, since I think junior high. At least high school, and I never knew what talent he had until about 5 years ago. He is also one of the member's of my brother-in-law's band, so he has a range of talent. He designed the logo for the band, Ironwood Rain and the CD covers. He has also designed one other book cover, my sister's mother-in-law's book.


I hope this endeavour will help Mike to become the artist he wants to be, a successful one, who can live off the art he creates and not have to just find a job somewhere to survive. He deserves it and his talent speaks for itself. 

If you get a chance, check out his art on his blog: Mikeyzart

He is a fantastic artist in my book and I would love to here what you think. Leave me a comment and until next time, have a great weekend!

Love, Lisa

  6. I never check out a book unless it has a provocative cover, so glad you found someone to design one to your liking.

  7. Thanks! I think it will turn out awesome and I agree, the cover has to grab you! I don't like a lot of the covers out there and that's why I chose to hire someone privately and do it on my own!
