I’m excited to announce that the book Underground Ring: Book 2, by M.M. Reid, has just been released! (You can find the Kindle edition here.) You may wonder what this has to do with me??? Well, let me enlighten you… I am proud to say that I designed and created the book cover for it.
Underground Ring: Book Two – by M.M. Reid – Book cover by Don Michael, Jr.
As is my usual process when creating a book cover, I created a painting first. After completing the painting, I scan it and then create the cover in Photoshop. Below is the painting…

It is a fun challenge to interpret the words of an author into one image to represent the book. I’m really excited with how both of these paintings, and then covers, turned out. Once you read the books I think you will see that they really captured the essence of their relative stories.
I love this thing I do!
