Michael Brack michaelbrack.deviantart.com/ created the drop-dead-gorgeous cover art featured to the left for my company.  The Buried Door www.amazon.com/Buried-Door-Rem… is the first book in the Marrowmire trilogy by Remedy Loame remedyloame.com/_/Welcome.html.

We commissioned Michael for this project because his creepy storybook style was perfect for the book. As you can see, he created an exceptional cover image for us and our in-house designer added beautiful typography. Michael is also working on a set of internal B&W illustrations to make this book even more of a treat for readers.

Literally hundreds of artists applied for this commission, which I posted on the DA Forum. Every shortlisted artist was incredibly talented, so it was a tough choice for my team. But we're thrilled with the cover and we can't wait to see what our next covers will look like.

I'll be announcing the artists we've chosen for our Dystopian YA novel and our Regency Romance here very soon!

Hi Daniel,

Very busy week - I'm hiring a couple of DA artists for projects this week and have about 350 responses - so that's a lot of portfolios to review!

Thank you, Richard. We are very excited about the artist we've hired, and in fact we've ended up increasing the scope of the job and budget because we like his work so much!

You have an impressive portfolio, yourself. I'd be very happy to see you apply for one of our future offers!
