At Inkd, I was tasked with illustrating the cover for Off to be the Wizard – a story about a modern day computer “wiz” who finds out that he can manipulate reality through a computer program. After reading the synopsis, my very first thought was that I wanted to make the cover reminiscent of NES cartridge art – which was also my first attempt at 8-bit pixel art. To my surprise, the author Scott Meyer would later turn this into a series and I would continue providing the cover art. I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed reading these books and that these covers rank as one of favorite projects to date.
