Of Mice and Magic

I have had the pleasure of doing work for David Farland on a few different occasions, either for his NYTimes bestselling Runelords series, or for young adult reader series Of Mice and Magic. The cover for the third book in the latter series, titled Freaky Fly Day, was just recently awarded the LDS Book Publishers Award of Best Middle Grade Book Cover of the Year for 2009.
I also painted the covers for the first two books in the series as well as all the interior drawings.  It is a great property to be involved with.  Mr. Farland has a wonderful imagination and is very visual in his writing.  Thank you!
