The Death Of Snow Book Artwork
EP worked with J.L. Shepard — my talented wife — to craft nice typography and a moody feeling for the artwork. There were two versions/editions of the cover. The original photography for the fist edition courtesy of Brooke Shaden and Lilyana Sanches for the second edition. Additional matte painting and photo manipulation were done to produce the final result.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Death has always been the theme of Ivy Snow's life. Not only does she drive around in a hand-me-down hearse, which was given to her by her adoptive father, an embalmer, but her biological parents died when she was twelve. At age seventeen, when she survives two events that should have taken her life, that feeling is validated all the more. Ivy dies. She feels the struggle. The darkness of death hitches its cape over her head and the world just falls away. And then she awakens with no imaginable explanation for her survival. But Ivy is given a clue. She's haunted nightly by two eerie figures that invade her dreams. And they're desperately trying to tell her something. Ivy soon meets an alarmingly insightful stranger, Ben Sullivan. He breaks down the walls of this introverted, intelligent girl who is desperate for meaning. But Ben has secrets of his own. He seems to know things. And those secrets just might flip the world on its head. Ivy has been ignorant of the truth for far too long. And the dangerous, unearthly world she belongs in just may prefer it stay that way. Pulled by the thread of a forbidden love story, this addicting fantasy depicts the struggle between quenching our desires and controlling our impulses.
