‘The Girl who became a Tree’

i was recently commissioned by the Irish writer Jonathan O’Brien to make a cover for his novella-in-progress The Girl who became a Tree

here is Jonathan’s Tumblr

here are some of his Books, including essays on Schiller, Confucius and Aristotle

and here’s a link to Fallout, his collection of short stories about, amongst other things, “A boy who tries to derail a train. A superman who cannot fly [and] A husband attacked by a vacuum cleaner.”

hopefully the The Girl who became a Tree will be available sometime in 2015!
