Percy #3 Approved

Sorry it took me a while to post this. Well, here it is. The third jacket was approved, and the response from Hyperion was really positive. Rick Riordan likes it too, which is great. I posted a picture of all three together so you can see them as a series. I don't know what the next one will be about yet, but I have some hunches.
Thanks to all the Percy fans who came to my blog and left comments. There will be two more Percy books to come and I look forward to making the jackets as much as I look forward to reading them.

Ooo, what pretty covers! Makes me want to pick up the books and read them, and I haven't an inkling what they are about! =)

HI John,
Are you the same guy I met very breifly on shrek? When we were the only ones left in the lake side building? How are you? I had now idea you did books and really love your illustrations.
I will be visiting for inspiration.

I'm so glad you're the one to redo these covers. I saw Riordan speak at a conference last year and was so excited about his stories. I recommend them to my students every year, and they have the hardest time finding them! Hopefully with your beautiful new illustrations, they'll become more popular and easier to find.
