I redesigned the book cover for Terry Pratchett's Small Gods. Okay, I did lift the type design straight off the original book jacket, but only because my illustration teacher said to (and I hand-painted it!) Acrylics and gold + silver gouache.

This ROCKS!!! Hehehe.... I'm reading Small Gods right now, it's perfect. And Om looks adorable (may my legs turn to lime Jello and may I fall in a pit of acid, or something along those lines).

All hail The Great and Powerful OM!
I like the layout of this better than the paperback, puts more emphasis on the tortoise/eagle dichotomy, and the forlorn hope that a tortoise may learn to fly...
