Here are two book covers that I had the privilege of designing and illustrating.

Photo of After Thoughts Bookcover by Lynn S. SchwebachI was commissioned by Summit Publication Design to design a book cover for Melba Smith-Dudley’s first book of published poems.  I scanned into Photoshop images created with alcohol inks on wax paper and Yupo paper in addition to a third scan of  “coffee stains” on printer’s paper. Only a few adjustments later, and I had a new, original piece of digital fine art, and a cover that was meant to symbolize a lifetime of collected poems reflecting on marriage, family, career and African-American culture.

Photo of Ciara and Veronica Bookcover by Lynn S. SchwebachStephen Nicholson commissioned me to design a book cover for his novel, Ciara and Veronica. I worked exclusively in Adobe Illustrator to create this artwork.
