As an avid fiction reader and lover, I was thrilled when Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s creative team asked me to create the cover design for Kim Smejkal’s new teen fantasy, Ink In The Blood. Inspired by the rich imagery and symbolism found in the novel, I created this tattoo-styled ribbon lettering and illustration to hint about the spooky, exciting tale within.
