I recently came in contact with Silent Ravyn, one of my favorite artists in the fandom, and asked her to make the cover for Allasso, Volume 2: Saudade. I’ve never contacted an artist for something like this before, and I really wondered how she would react. Her response?
“I would love to do the cover art for this! We should definitely talk.”
And we did talk. Today, she sent me a link to the finished image, based off the story “Magtwilla and the Mouse” by Mary E. Lowd. Her art always has such an upbeat joy to it, and I was glad to see that this image combined that joy with a monotone sorrow. I’m ecstatic about this contribution.
Prize winner will be announced on Sunday, and Allasso, Volume 2: Saudade will be released May 1st in online, print, and e-book formats.
