The Dragon With the Chocolate Heart

“The Dragon With the Chocolate Heart”
6.25×9 inches, watercolor
unused cover illustration commissioned for Bloomsbury Publishing

This version of the scan is cropped to 6.25×9″, but the actual illustration was sized for British publishing. The painting was commissioned as a paid sample while they found a visual direction for thee story, and while a very different style was opted for the book I had a great time working on it with them.

Who can argue with shape-changing dragon girls?
