Tom McCaffrey is the author of the popular Claire Trilogy. After the publication of his first installment, The Wise Ass, Tom reached out to us to put forward some ideas for his second entry into the series.
Although the cover for The Wise Ass was a fairly simple image of Claire the mule, it seemed to us such an iconic image that the following book covers must be based around the same image, with a graphic treatment that reflected the escalting sci-fi ideas of the story.
Tom was thrilled with both the idea and the execution, and engaged us produce a cover the the third and final entry in the series. We were very proud of these covers, and of the wonderful feedback we recieved from the author.
Really, client enthusiasm is everything!
Book Covers Took The Claire Trilogy Into Space And Heaven
I retained Richard’s services to do the covers of An Alien Appeal (Book 2) and Kissing My Ass Goodbye (Book 3) of The Claire Trilogy after seeing his work on Margaret Dempsey’s awesome novel, Mind Games. Richard was professional, responsive and an absolute pleasure to work with.
He right away realized that the headshot of Claire the Mule, the central character of the trilogy, that appeared on The Wise Ass (Book 1) had to be incorporated as the common denominator on the next two book covers to tie the trilogy together. Then he captured the heart of each part of the trilogy and featured it around the reconceptualized Claire for each cover. Brilliant. I have received nothing but compliments over the concept and artwork. I cannot recommend Richard enough to anyone looking to put that cherry on the creative sundae.
