Mountain Biking

Alright, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things and getting this blog up on a more regular basis than I have been recently. Being busy is no excuse not to show you what's going on.

Here's the finished cover illustration for the new kid's book I've been working on. I showed off a few of the different elements of the cover here and there but here's how all the pieces fall together. Once the designer is done and the logo, type, and other elements of the cover are in place I figure this one can be called done and done.

Thanks again to Jenny who gave me the great idea on where to find a place in Boulder to get some good photos of a mountain biking track for the background. And thanks again to the weather for giving me a good day to get this photo. After months of snow, rain, and gray skies, I think this was the first nice day we had in a while.

It's always nice when things fall into place so easily when you need them to.

Thanks Robbo! Luckily I live in a place that has a variety of locations I can run out and shoot with my camera. The next cover deals with the ocean though so, being in Colorado, I may be out of luck!
