    Tristan Elwell (UPDATE 5/11: NEW SITE)

    *EDIT*: My new website is up with tons of old and new work, check it out at!
    Also, I've merged several other threads into this one, so it's not just book covers any more.

    Greetings, all. It's been ages since I actually posted any work, rather than making snarky comments about other people's. To make up for that, here's some new stuff now, with more to follow soon.

    First, Fire Horse. A publisher saw the piece I had done a few years back of the girl on horseback with the red background and thought something similar would be perfect for this book. The challenge was to do something that wasn't too similar . This is oil on illustration board, 12" x 24" (it's a wraparound, including the flaps).

    These are the covers for the first two books in a series about a mystery solving witch. Sort of Bewitched meets Murder She Wrote. The original painting for the first one is in the book section of the Society of Illustrators annual show, which starts next week if anybody wants to check it out. Both are oil on board, 14.5" x 9".
