Luka Jacket by Himmapaan Luka Jacket by Himmapaan
The entire final jacket of Luka and the Fire of Life by Salman Rushdie. I was sent the JPEG version of it just a few days ago, so I thought I might post it too. Please forgive some slight pixellation which has occurred from my using an online image editor to resize the file (I am, alas, still entirely unacquainted with Photoshop). The jacket design is by Robbin Schiff and Anna Bauer of Random House U.S. My original ink and gouache illustration is here


And with this, in lieu of a seasonal image from me this year (which I utterly failed to produce), I wish everyone a very merry Christmas!

A few details had to be omitted (like the otter on the spine, for example), but I'm glad most of it made it too. ^_^

OMG! I saw this in the store and though to myself, that looks like Himmapaan on Deviant! But I didnt know your name, so I couldn't know for sure :) Congrats, I am really interested in reading this book!

Thank you, Ginie!

(By the by, I sent you a card. It's likely to be late, but...)

Oh! You're an absolute sweetheart <3 I'm actually in Thailand right now, so I'll likely find it after New Year's when I return, but I'm overjoyed that I'll be going home to a beautiful card in my mailbox. :hug: I'll be sure to send you something too, though it's likely to have to wait until after I'm back from Thailand - I don't have much of my art supplies with me. :blush:

Oh! I know this book! I saw an interview with the author on Craig Ferguson. Congratulations on this one. It's stunning. :)

And merry Christmas to you too! And felicitations for the new year. :)

I do indeed! I still watch/read LJ, but don't like their ethics anymore, so tend to refrain from commenting; but you are pretty much one of the very, very few reasons I remain! You and your work are a bright light along a dark road. :)

Ah, I haven't been keeping up with their changes, unfortunately. And even worse yet in keeping up with friends' pages and commenting. :ashamed: (I asked not as any kind of pointed reminder, by the way, in case that's what it sounded like! :oops:) Thank you so much for your continued interest; I appreciate it immensely. :hug:
