The Musician Cover

The Musician

This is the cover art for Kerri Bennett Williamson’s 8th novel, which is available in paperback and on kindle at Amazon.

I chose to keep the cover entirely black and white, not only to represent the black and white keys on a piano (which is captured in the Tudor style of the house) but also because parts of the story can be somewhat melancholy.

The most enjoyable parts for me were working on her hair, and the tree just behind her, as I always enjoy the freedom that comes with drawing organic things.

Mrs. Rutherford Cover

February 15, 2011

Mrs. Rutherford is Kerri Bennett Williamson’s 2nd novel, and, incidentally my second cover as well. There has always been something about this one that seems to grab people’s eye. I have had numerous comments on it, and requests for it in print form. I’ve always liked the colors; and I think it gets noticed because of the simplicity of the use of mainly shades of blue and yellow.

Prattleton Gossips

I thought I’d post a close up of the background gossips on the Prattleton cover to show some of their details.

These ladies were pretty much free hand, though I did look at some clothing of the day in reference for what they were wearing. I usually like a reference picture for my art, but when I can’t find something close to what I have in my head I just wing it, which is what this ended up being. It worked out, as they were supposed to be kind of cartoonish anyway.

Miss Houston face

Thought I might post a close up on Miss Houston’s face, so you could see some of the details that you might not be able to make out on the full cover.

Miss Houston

This book cover, for Kerri Bennett Williamson’s 7th novel, was a combined effort. My sister, Anna Williamson, did the background and I did Miss Houston herself and the layout.
