Terrabella Smoot and the Unsung Monsters by JonBeanHastings Terrabella Smoot and the Unsung Monsters by JonBeanHastings
This is the cover for my children's book "Terrabella Smoot and the Unsung Monster," which is out now and should be available at your local comic book store (if not, tell 'em to order it from SLG/Amaze Ink through Diamond Distribution).

It's a ink wash under watercolor. I also designed the logo.

It's about 48 pages! Wa ha ha ha hee hee heh!

Hey, where ya goin'?!!

Dang, if she'd stuck around I'd have told her...

It's the story of a young monster named Terrabella Smoot. She is on her way to the Monster of the Year celebration, when she finds herself lost in the woods and on a quest to be reunited with her family. Along her journey, she meets monsters of all kinds, from the peculiar yet helpful Eppie-Gladys Snarf to the bellowing Lord Thonk the Ghastly to the downtrodden unsung monsters.

Nice work with the watercolors. I personally have always found them irritating and slow. But, I have the patience of a rabid hyper-active green bean -- (attention deficite little buggery legumes, I swear.)
the designs are adorable, and it really makes for an effectively attractive bookcover.
Should be awesome ^.^

I put on my "extra clever hat" when designing it, if I do say so myself. If the book is on a shelf behind other books, you'll just see the title and maybe the top part of Terrabella… then, when it's lifted up off the shelf, that reveals the rest of the (unsung) monsters.

Well, then how am I supposed to draw her some more if you've got her all hugged up for ever like?

You simply will have to cease drawing her, then. I can't help it, talk to the Better Business Bureau.

Humph.

To quote from my promo material:

It is the tale of Terrabella Smoot, a young monster on her way to the Monster of the Year celebration, who finds herself lost in the woods and in search of her family. Along the way she meets monsters of all kinds, from the peculiar yet helpful Eppie-Gladys Snarf to the bellowing and ghastly Lord Thonk to the oppressed unsung monsters.

Terrabella Smoot and the Unsung Monsters is a comic odyssey full of odd monsters, strange places and, of course, wacky hi-jinks.

The whole thing is cram-packed with adorable, if I do say so myself (and I do).
