Hello! I chose to do the cover of the second book of the Trixie Belden series, The Red Trailer Mystery. It was first published in 1950, but my favourite cover was the editions republished in the 60s, called cameo editions because of the cameos of Trixie in the upper left corner. Mary Stevens did the original interior illustrations, so I included her along with the author on the cover. Trixie Belden books are also published under the name Kathryn Kenny, but Julie Campbell wrote the first 6 books. I chose colours based on the first cameo edition, as they're some of the first colours I think of when I think of Trixie Belden. I always feel a part of the Bob Whites when reading these books. They make you feel at home. I chose to illustrate Trixie and Honey spotting the orchard that's a part of the Smith farm. The Smith Farm and their old apple orchard are very important to the solving of the mystery! I hope you enjoy my cover! It was such a wonderful learning experience, perfect for where I'm at in my journey as an artist. This is completely traditional by the way!

Hi everyone! This is my first Proko Challange! I couldn't resist to squeeze in some time for it when I saw the topic! It was a real challange to work with such a limited colour palette! The book I went with is one of my all time favourites, Sabriel by Garth Nix. A very good fantasy story with interesting takes on magic and good storytelling!
