Apologies for the long absence. I won't say any excuses except that it's all my fault for neglecting this blog for so long.

I don't have any drawing to show today. These book covers are what I did a couple of months ago. They are series of Japanese-teaching text books and since the covers are illustration focus, I think it's appropriate to post in this blog.

Generally, my book cover design would look more graphic. but it has been getting more and more illustration-oriented lately. It's more work on details and time-consuming on each piece but I feel it has more charm and style.

I enjoyed doing these illustration pieces very much :-) You can click on the images to see the bigger version in Flickr.

By the way, my MerryDay shop is still on vacation. It will be open again when I'm ready. Thanks for stopping by!
