I have to admit, I didn't have the energy to work on this cover painting until last week. The book has been finished for a year and a half, but I didn't know how to design the cover, and how or when the book would become a real thing...until now.

No asking friends for feedback on this one. I usually love feedback, and I have a reserve of special illustrators that are amazing at story and design, but I didn't ask anyone. I wanted to sit down with my firneds, the Nothing, Something, and the Everything, and have one last horrah. One last adventure in their world.

After all, there's no art director on this project. It's just me and all of you, so the cover, I did for me.

Next steps are finishing touches, some more layout, and prepping the files for print.

Here we go!
