Here's a cover for the fantastic "Hollow Earth" series by John and Carol Barrowman, published by Simon and Schuster's Aladdin imprint. This is for the epic final "Book of Beasts".
The books are about two twins with the inherited ability to make their artwork come to life. Art and historic paintings play a big role in the books as well - how cool is that! For an epic finish to the series, I was inspired by the peak moment where the portal to "Hollow Earth" the subterranean realm where all the creatures of myth and fantasy are imprisoned, has been opened. The book's heroes are beset by the villain riding a black, winged stag with Hollow Earth's creatures emerging behind them.
Thanks to everyone at Aladdin for another amazing project!
