One of my best buddies Christopher Fritschi wrote his first novel last year titled “Hero-The Unknown Territories” and asked me to design the cover. It’s a really funny and entertaining romp through familiar sword and sorcery but in his unique way Chris turns it sideways and makes the genre really fresh and fun. I had a lot on my plate but after reading the manuscript I had to take a stab at it, ultimately it didn’t work out I didn’t quite get the imagery he had in mind and I got really bogged down with my regular clients so he had another artist complete the project but I hope to illustrate the volume for him in the future. You can find the book here and I highly recommend you not waste any time and read it today as a matter of fact you should purchase several copies to hand down to your grand children.
You can find Chris’ website here.
The sketches were some of the character concepts I liked and below them are the first few cover roughs, now go butter up Chris with compliments so he gets volume 2 written faster.
