I'm excited to release a sneak peak of one of the first illustrations from Stirring: Book Two of The Emblem & The Lantern. As with the first installment, Mikael Jury is the illustrator behind this amazing piece which, masterfully depicts the scene from the prologue.
One key difference between book one and two is that Mikael has set the goal of illustrating a key scene from each chapter in new one. In addition Mikael and I are working on facial appearances for book two. Our aim with Awakening was to keep the characters faces out of the lime light to give them more of mysterious visual quality. Mostly to allow the reader to imagine the characters as they'd like. However, as the character's stories expand in part two we thought it would be good to expand their illustrated look as well.
More to come!
