‘Skin Hunger’ cover

Concept cover illustration for the novel, A Resurrection of Magic: Skin Hunger by Kathleen Duey.

In the story, magic is trained into young boys – not through fun magical boarding school escapades, but via strict training. Meditation, fasting, and nonmaterialism also feature heavily as part of their regimen. I wanted to capture the complex and dark reality of Duey’s story in a striking way, so that potential readers could quickly realise this isn’t your typical teenager-meets-magic story.
