Doggie Tales

Friday, April 12th, 2013

Holly Lewittas & Barbara Hinske are both great writers, and MonkeyC clients. Both authors commissioned us with their book covers and WordPress theme design. Both authors also write about doggies, recounting the creatures mysterious adventures. I had such a great time working on these projects, it was a lot of fun composing the illustrations. I designed both book covers for the “Spunky Series” and the author site SpunkyMysteryBooks.com, and the cover and site for “Coming to Rosemont”, BarbaraHinske.com.
