Madame Xanadu issue 1 cover!  One of my favorites.  Took me a long time, but it was totally worth it.  X’s become arrows; all the corners were symbolic of the times and places she would go in that arc, and it became the back design to all her tarot cards.

I colored the linework—something I used to do more of back in the day.  Every line was colored meticulously to match the colors around it!
Added texture/logo.  This cover was all about the textures, which I created in Corel Painter using the watercolor brushes.
