I'm excited to share the final cover for my new chapter book, The Case of the Abandoned Sea Otters (Magic Seashell Mysteries #1)!
I illustrated this cover based on the drawings I completed for the inside of the book, where our main character, Riley, sketches her clues to solve the mystery in her nature journal.
I used the sketch of a sea otter pup wrapped in seaweed and created a digital painting, placing the pup in a stylized sea.
Riley's nature journal is seen in the bottom corner, where she is currently sketching the otter pup as one of their first clues.
My favorite way to create art is to use Procreate on my iPad - highly recommend if you are at all interested!
Can't wait for your reactions to the cover in print IRL!
The Case of the Abandoned Sea Otters (Magic Seashell Mysteries #1) will be released next week.
