Eva of the Farm - Simon and Schuster

I've just added this cover illustration to my website, something I've wanted to share for ages! It was commissioned by Simon and Schuster in the U.S. last May for a wonderful book called Eva of the Farm by Dia Calhoun. I also did five black and white, interior illustrations which I'll be able to show you at a later date. I enjoyed this project hugely and I can't wait to see the finished book when it's published next summer.

Hi Kate--
I can't tell you how thrilled I am with the illustratins you did for my book. This is absolutely the most stunning book design I've ever had. I love how Eva is looking at the Farm...reminds me of myself looking at our farm. And I love how you captured the hammock, the dog and frisbee, the sprinklers,etc. in the interior art. In another month or so I will have photos of the farm up on my website. Thanks so much for your amazing work.
All best, Dia Calhoun

Hi Dia,
It's lovely to hear from you and I'm thrilled you're so pleased with the illustrations! I really did enjoy reading Eva, it's such a great story I was hooked from the beginning. I grew up on a farm too - I'll definitely look out for your photos, it will be interesting to see what it's actually like!
Best wishes,
Kate
