Tasmanian author Russell Kelly approached me to design and illustrate a book cover for his new novel Only The Empty Sky — a beautiful love story set on Lord Howe Island during the early 1900s. I loved the story that Russell had written and quickly became very inspired by the challenge of producing a classical natural history style illustration to suite the tone of the text. As the project developed Russell indicated that he also needed his own author website to coincide with the launch of the book and I was very happy to help him with that as well.
