As a part of the branding for Encounters with the Imaginary Vol. II, I took various photos of Volume I in natural environments to convey the mood of the brand. I did some post processing, and the rest was completed by Kira Knight and Jeszika Le Vye.

The branding of Encounters Vol. II utilized natural textures, muted colors, and pops of turquoise, red, and off-white.

This photo ended up being the primary marketing image during the Kickstarter campaign, and the team processed it in several color variations that fit with the styling of Volume II.

Encounters with the Imaginary, Volume 2 is a creature art anthology published yearly by Boneshaker Press. Boneshaker ran a successful Kickstarter campaign in September to fund the book, which will be released in April of 2018.

In 2017 I created a number of illustrations, a short story, product photography, and marketing assets for the anthology. My spread of work accompanies the paintings and stories of 20+ other artists, without whom the project would not have been possible! Special thanks go to Jeszika Le Vye, Kira Knight, Evan Winston, and Magali Mebsout for coordinating the project, and thanks also to Kira Knight for her fantastic book layout wizardry. Special thanks as well to Manuel Aquino who was an awesome collaborator when we created a chapter illustration together!
