Every Friday, I am going to be featuring a recent design that I've done, as well as the author or blogger who commissioned the project. So here goes!

This week's design is the cover for Abbi Glines' novel Existence

Log line from her website: "Pagan Moore doesn’t cheat Death, but instead, falls in love with him." 

Abbi is a lot of fun, and it was a pleasure to work with her. Make sure you check out her blog

So far, I am loving my new "job". I have trouble calling cover design work. Can it really be work if you get to wear sweatpants while you do it? It's been a busy week, but I've loved every second of it.

Here are some essentials for a freelance graphic designer:

- Audiobooks
- Good music
- Frequent stretch breaks 
- Posture exercises
- Eye drops
- Patience
- Chocolate
Okay, so maybe that last one isn't strictly a necessity, but still. Check back next week for another book cover. If you're interested in commissioning me to design something, you can find more info here.
