Book Illustration

I am going to do illustrations for a new book by Naturalist/Author Lyanda Haupt. Her book, Crow Planet, is a collection of personal stories about the urbanization of crows and how they, and we, have adapted to each other’s presence. The linoleum print medium is well suited for crow related imagery. I will be doing ten linoleum print illustrations that will be featured at the beginning of each chapter. I have read the manuscript and found it to be very interesting and informative about the crow/human relationship. I thought I might get to illustrate the cover as well but I guess they wanted someone else more refined for that. However, I get to retain the rights to my illustrations and will have an entire new series of prints available to sale and promote.
