If you didn’t get to attend SSP’s Unhallowed Halloween event, I’m bringing part of the fun to you. As both a writer and an artist, I thought it would be fun to showcase the process of crafting a book over, from its early sketches to the final product. Now that Beowulf: The Midgard Epic has officially seen its cover release, I’m beyond excited and elated to share my creative process with you all. I offer a special thanks to Lisa Vasquez for selecting an impeccable font that makes the title pop! Let’s take a peak below the deep, dark lake where Grendel’s mother poses, alerted to Beowulf’s imminent arrival … Adventure awaits!
