This was an Illustration I did for a wonderful friend. Her name is Monica Grimm, and she created a wonderful Novel. Link can be found at: http://rentonchronicles.blogspot.com/

This is really different than stuff I normally do. Lots more photos in this process, and a very safe composition.

It's a great book, and you guys should read it. Her Daughter did the Cover Art, which I love. Please be a support! You know how tough it could be sometimes for artist and writers! Show some love :)
