Cover Illustration


Here is a book cover illustration that I created for a client in CA. She is self-publishing this charming story and I was happy to assist her in the development of the cover.
Also I have a new website www.lisamgriffin.com. It took some time to get the feel I wanted but still maintain a simple, clean, design with the focus on my portfolio. Would love to get some feedback on it... if you aren't shy about wearing a "critique cap" - let me know your thoughts and post below. Thanks!

Ladies, you are making me blush! =)
Glad the cover is being well rec'd, and yes, the client was very happy with it. Thank you as well for your thoughts on the website. It took along time for me to get it right. Didn't want a lot of bells and whistles, just a nice, clean site with the focus on the art.

I am a big fan of simple design, and you did a great job on your site! I like the portfolio "slider".

Your cover is good, too! You do a wonderful job rendering in colored pencil.
