Sorry about the relative silence here--bursts of great busyness alternating with terrible sloth have prevented me from posting. But I've got some god stuff lined up! And here's a bit of good stuff in the meantime, too: spotted at This Isn't Happiness, it's the cover for a young adult fantasy novel coming out next month, and it was designed by an artist new to me, Canadian Yuta Onoda.
As far as I know this is his first cover design, but if you look through his portfolio you'll see lots of good stuff. If only this illustration (for a review of that woeful-sounding 'pressure your kids to succeed until they crack' parenting manual Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother) had been the cover for the book.
