This is the prequel for Keith Ward’s ’99 Days’ and thus had an entirely different marketing strategy and required a different feel. While 99 Days had a dark cover I wanted to juxtapose this as the prequel with a lighter cover, something that could have been considered hard given the title. Again I get to paint blood which is always a lot of fun doing something so detailed, viscous and semi-transparent. I also made sure to add jewelry as well as a detailed crown as I do in many of my pieces.
