Sharing my Art





I thought I'd share with all of you some of my other creative projects. As much as I wish I could write all day every day, I also have other outlets to express myself. I've been a professional artist for over 30 years, and though most of that has been commercial art like ads and brochures and corporate identities, I also illustrate and do 3D photography for computer gaming. 

I would love, and I do mean LOVE, to design more book covers. I haven't done a lot because the need hasn't been so great until recently with this whole self-publishing trend going on. If you need a book cover designed, or if you know someone who does, please have them get in touch. My rates are a lot less than you might think. Seriously.

On another note, I thought I might add that I'm a guest at Urban Fantasy Reviews today, and I talk about the great subgenre mash-up. Please stop by to say hello and leave a comment about what kind of genre crossing you'd like to see.

Coolness!

How'd you get someone to catch you in flight like that?! ;-]

Great work, Karen! I didn't know you also did book cover design -- I may have a need for such services in the future.

Tammy Patton said...

Amazing. I'll keep you in mind if I decide to go the Indie route with my work in progress.

Your art is really beautiful eye candy. Love your book covers, I'm hoping one day in the not too distant future I'll need your expertise.

Thanks so much, everyone, for the lovely comments. I'm designing a new cover for my romantic suspense DESERT GUARDIAN that I plan to re-release under my own label as a self-pubbed ebook. So I'll post the cover here when it's finished. It will be good to get some feedback.
