This is the full-wrap cover, though you can see the official front cover here at my Wordpress blog, which also shows a lot of work in progress shots: [link]

Read your blog entry about this. I love when artists share something about their process.

This is really amazing. It's almost a shame to wrap it around a book because the composition of the whole piece works so well.

I keep coming back to stare at this, time and time again. I am in love with your work. I love the colours here. Everything is just beautiful. Stupendous. Wonderful. Brilliant. It reminds me of the Serendipity books I used to read back in the day. :)

Aw, thank you so much for your lovely comment. Juliet Marillier is a lovely, true-hearted person and no wonder she inspires such awesome fans! I love her writing, and am very much looking for the anthology to come out.

That is, honestly, one of the loveliest things a person has said to me about the cover so much, so thank you! :D
