Reflecting on 4.5 years at Breathless Press

A few months belated on making this post, but I was waiting to see if some of the covers I wanted to show in this blog post were used or not, and since it seems safe to say which will be used after BP and which will never be published with the corresponding books or continue to do so.

In 2010 A friend of mine sent me a link to a job posting for cover artists. Never having done cover art before, I didn’t expect to be replied to when I sent in fan art and my cover letter and had nothing but hopes and dreams to back me. The publisher, Justyn Perry, saw my potential and gave me the job. As the months progressed, my work started to as well. By the end of that year I was promoted to Art Director. Eventually, BP branched out into YA with Lycaon Press which gave me more to work with than sexy covers, which was always fun to have range. I will always be thankful for my time with this company and I am still saddened by their doors closing this spring.
