The Battle of Echo Canyon

My grandfather wrote a goofy cowboy book and asked me to illustrate the cover. It’s really fulfilling to be able to help the people I love by doing what I love.

He had very specific ideas about the cover’s imagery and I worked within this preferences make a stronger composition. I used watercolors to create the western landscape and wrote out the text to give a rustic appearance. The two characters on the cover are the primary protagonists in the story.
