Sometimes…

12 Comments

It really just HITS me!! I mean, I know that my job is cover art… I know that it helps to sell the AUTHOR’S book. That is why I do what I do.. I love authors.. They give back to me everyday.

But…….. every now and then, I just get completely overwhelmed at the scope of where I am today.

I went to my favorite local bookstore ( the owner is so sweet!!) She holds an RT mag. for me. This month, I have seven covers in it! I know to some people, they are like what is the big deal.. but to me.. in my little Pickyme world.. THAT is just………………….. AMAZING!!

My hubbs and I talk about my career a lot, and he has always supported me. He told me when I started this crazy journey that I would be where I am, this fast. I didn’t believe him. I know how hard and competitive this business is. I told him not to count on it for a while… well, 80 something covers later in less than 10 months.. He was right!!

God has blessed our family, and I just felt the need to say how THANKFUL I am TO YOU… my supporters, To YOU the authors, TO YOU the awesome publishers, TO YOU the amazing design teams I have had the honor to work with. I love you all from the bottom of my heart: YOU have made a dream, a reality! Thank you!!!!!

  1. As someone who only draws the artistic admiration from her 2 sons when she draws a “cool” animal or superhero, you deserve to feel good about seeing your vision put to reality. You should feel proud of that, it takes a strong person to believe in themselves and make their talent speak for them. I am glad to have been able to become a someone who admires your art, a spirit who loves the same books, and have a laugh because of your humor.

  2. You’re work is flat-out awesome! I was so lucky to have you do a cover for me. Your amazing eye for art paired with your fantastic attitude… tell me why you didn’t believe your husband? 😉
