Artwork Description

As an illustrator and graphic designer, I like to tie the two together. This little dragon gecko made its way to the screen, and a playful design application followed. This book doesn't exist, but it would be nice if it did.

Wow, thanks Ken (And the friend!)

I'll pass along some tutorials and tips on digital painting so you can pass them to any students you have next year who have tablets. Smile

Hey Amy,
Showed it to an illustrator friend of mine, he was very humbled! I'll be using this as an example for next year's class. You've set the bar up a few notches indeed.

This is just wonderful, Amy! I love the colors, the details, the design, and --- eee! --- great use of type! From one graphic designer/illustrator to another, I salute you! Laughing out loud

It's part irony and partly on purpose. It's the kind of piece that can be taken either way. Smile I love trompe l'oiele (sp) stuff, and this fits in.

Brilliant! I am happily perplexed where reality is murky – Is the creature a part of the book cover or did he (?) just land there by happy accident/irony?

I agree! This *needs* to be a real book, dahling! I absolutely love it. A great idea perfectly executed. Cheers.

What a wonderfully whimsical critter! I just love the concept. This looks like it could (and should) be a real book cover.

Art at its best.
