The Secret of the Sacred Scarab author, Fiona Ingram has been taken on by a local book distributor and publisher. So further books in her series will be printed locally which will be so much better than doing it remotely. The distributor was not a fan of the original cover (not done by me) and so Fiona asked me to come up with a new cover. They wanted a sense of action and mystery. Hopefully this is what we’ve achieved.
I painted the scene in two pieces, firstly, the boy in the columned hall and secondly, the scarab. This so that I could use Photoshop to add in the glow that was necessary.
