Original Cover Art for
"The Stone Fey"
|O r i g i n a l C o v e r
Watercolor on paper.
Actual Size: 9" x 13"
If I could change one thing about my
experience doing The Stone Fey, in hindsight, I would have fought harder about the cover.
For the most part, Allyn, Harcourt and I saw remarkably eye to eye. On the
cover...well, when they told me they didn't like this image I was disappointed...but I
could live with it. When I saw the cover comp with the bright yellow title type on
it, I was...well it's hard to describe exactly what I thought, and think, about it.
I can live with the cropped
image, but to this day I still hate the bright yellow type and wish I could change it.
I've posted "my version" of what I
wanted the cover to look like...see what YOU think, just don't blame me for the yellow
type, it wasn't my decision.
