The project needed to be completed in a very short period of time. The MS was already at the publisher when my portfolio was reviewed and the decision was made to change the cover illustrator. 

I felt very strongly that I needed to read the book before sharpening my pencil. It was not possible to extend the production schedule to allow for reading the MS so I needed to move fast and read the book in one sitting. 

Here are a few of the process/evolutionary progress drawings I produced during the project.
