Logo Design – Kraken Underwater Solutions, LLC

I had the pleasure of designing a beautiful logo for Joe at Kraken Underwater Solutions, LLC this month. I really enjoyed the challenge of making the napkin sketch into something useful for his business plans. The order was for a black and white design but after I got it done, I could not help but throw some color into it and offer a gray toned gradient color version as well. I love supporting local businesses! Thank you for the opportunity, Joe!

Joe provided me with a napkin sketch photo which was sent to me via Messenger and I worked out a design to fit his needs. Paying particular attention to the detail of the tools used in the trade, this logo is set to stand out for Joe and his company.


Created with Adobe Illustrator, this illustration is set for print on t-shirts, business cards, marketing and advertising materials and social media outlets.


Clients receive a collection of file types so they may use the type needed for the varying parts of their business.



New Release by Client Author – Ghost Writer: Why Donald Trump Will Not Win the 2020 Election

New Release by Client Author – Ghost Writer: Why Donald Trump Will Not Win the 2020 Election

Ghost Writer Why Donald Trump

Ghost Writer, an author who reached out to my studio for cover design alone, has published a free book related to the upcoming elections. If political writings are your interest, then please feel free to visit this author’s site to download the book. This is my first request for a political-related book cover design and was a bit of a challenge to meet the desires of the author. While I don’t lean towards a political party, I do enjoy editorial art and have a lithograph print of my own that is politically driven.  You can see it here:



Note, I have no affiliation with the author’s political views and have not read this book, nor am I promoting any political views.

Closing out September with Custom Photography

Closing out September with Custom Photography

Another Abduction by Martin Von Cannon


I finally broke out the studio photography supplies and got to work on some green screen custom modeling. A re-do of an earlier cover, the author desired some live people character representation. It’s crazy how art school and photography classes from 13 years ago are FINALLY getting some use! It’s good to break away from the stock photography and get in some custom photography and illustrations, offering me a more creative outlet which was the whole point of setting up the studio in the first place. To find out more about this book and the work we did on the cover, click here.

What are YOU waiting for? Let’s get going on your cover!

September has been a Busy Month!

Mike Walker and Palabra Smith - A Simplified HAIKU for You to do

September has proven to be the busiest month for Cover Design work! Added to the list of completed designs is another book by the busy Mike Walker and Palabra Smith: A Simplified Haiku for You to do. 

If you are ready to start writing your book but don’t know where to start, come on over to the St. Petersburg library on the second Thursday of every month and sit in on the Florida Writer’s Association meetings. You do not have to be a member to attend, nor do you have to participate and share your book ideas.  You can simply listen and learn. If your book is under way and you are looking for a cover design or don’t know a thing about formatting, give me a call or drop me an email.  I will take care of those both for you!  If you want to see some examples of my work, check out my portfolio of final designs and draft designs.

You can find me and my husband, Martin, there – as well as a great group of other amazing authors. Note: I am working on my first book – and find this group to be a great help in sorting out where to start and how to narrow down my focus.
