Illustrated Book Cover Designs

This is a small selection of my designs spanning the last 16 years. As you can see, there are quite a variety of subjects and styles. If you are an author looking for a professional artist to design your cover, I very much look forward to working with you. I will make the process as easy as possible. We will discuss your requirements and any ideas you may have in-depth, and I will size the completed design to your specific requirements, ensuring that you are happy at every stage of the designing process. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to read my FAQs, and contact me to find out more.

“Somehow she made sense of all my vague ideas, ramblings and mutterings, and created a cover that not only exceeded my expectations but also – by some magical process! – brought my thousand-year old story to life. I cannot wait to finish my next project and watch from the sidelines as Sam weaves her magic yet again!!”

This is what Karen had to say…

“She’s an incredibly talented artist and illustrator and when I sent her an email inquiring about her process, she emailed me back the next day. I LOVE that kind of service. She worked with us on creating our vision for the book and had lots of great ideas…”

Mini Marriage

Andrew Burgoyne

This is one of my recently completed book cover designs and my second design for Author Andrew A D Burgoyne. We discussed the history of political cartoons in depth, and decided to go for a really out there concept that included a lot of humor. Although the subject matter is heavy, I like how the illustration can raise a smile, and hooks people in.

“For Look Down I simply sent her a crude sketch I had done in my clumsy ham-fisted way and she rendered it into a beautifully detailed full-color cover. It required almost no modification at all. I am amazed at Sam’s talent!”

“Taking my rather vague ideas for a cover, Sam created the excellent artwork I submitted to my publisher for use in designing the cover of my novel. Sam delivered all of the drafts in a timely manner, listening to my feedback, and was a pleasure to work with, her fee reasonable and her manner always professional. I highly recommend her.”

The Balance of Heaven and Earth

Writing a book is usually very much a singular endeavor, so the thought of working with an artist on the cover design of what up until then had been my own and very personal project filled me with a certain amount of trepidation. However, I need not have worried. From the outset working with Sam was a joy. Somehow she made sense of all my vague ideas, ramblings and mutterings, and created a cover that not only exceeded my expectations but also – by some magical process! – brought my thousand-year old story to life. I cannot wait to finish my next project and watch from the sidelines as Sam weaves her magic yet again!!

“Sam turned a simple concept I had into one of the most beautiful covers I’ve ever seen. Everyone to whom I show the book says, “Paul, this is a beautiful book!” If you want a great cover, just give Sam a little information, get in the flow, and watch a beautiful cover come to life. Five stars, Sam!”
