Artwork for Mortal Coil

For Mortal Coil, I decided to have a unified look in the art. To achieve this, I'm working with one artist, Jennifer Rodgers. She's pretty charged up about the project, and so am I.

The art will primarily be full color chapter heading splash pages. Any other art will be decorative design elements.

The first piece for the Theme chapter is complete, and here is a preview:

Pretty grim stuff Mr.Taylor. I didn't realize that mortal coil was going to be so darkly themed. Will the focus of the setting be uniformly dark or am I reading too much into one illustration?

This is probably the darkest illo for the whole book. I wanted to show that you could go very dark if you wanted. There will be a creepy vibe in a lot of the art, but there are a few that are considerably less disturbing.

Wow, that's beautiful. She's great!

Thanks, Jason! The rest of the art is just as good, so far. I'm saving that back for now. I want the paying customers to have some surprises!

When the cover is done, I will post that here, too.
