Shy

Shy, gay romance novel cover illustration by Paul Richmond

Sometimes when a city boy goes to the country, hilarity ensues. This illustration, the cover art for John Inman's novel Shy, gives the expression "down on the farm" a whole new meaning. Since this piece had all the elements of my Cheesecake Boys series - namely, a handsome pinup boy with his pants falling down - I thought it would make a great limited-edition print to add to my collection. So don't be shy...visit my online store here to purchase this down-home delight today!

Want to see how a novel cover is born? Here's a sneak peek at the process.

You'll likely be seeing more of my cover illustrations pop up soon as print offerings. I have been a busy boy this year creating covers for a slew of novels by Dreamspinner Press. I freelanced for them for several years, but ever since becoming their Associate Art Director last July, I've had the privilege of working with even more authors to help bring their novels to life.

I'll post a few more below. If you feel so inclined, leave me a comment and let me know which one I should release as my next limited-edition print.
