My Brother's Story by kelleybean86 My Brother's Story by kelleybean86
Here's a book cover I did for the novel "My Brother's Story," written by Allen Johnson Jr. It's set in the 1930's and is about a boy named Johnny who discovers that he has a long-lost twin. Johnny runs away to find him, gets lost in a Georgia swamp, and is rescued by a Linc, a black man who lives alone in the labyrinth-like swamp. I also created 21 black-and-white chapter illustrations for the book. You can purchase the book and e-book at the Blackwater Novels website: blackwaternovels.com/

Thanks! "A blast" is not exactly how I'd describe it....it's a lot of work and nervousness while it's in progress, but once it's done, it's very satisfying!
