Book cover illustration - Hulder - by oomizuao Book cover illustration - Hulder - by oomizuao
This is the cover illustration I did for an absolutely fantastic, Norwegian book series called "Kire", written by the amazing Tonje Tornes. This is the first book in the series, and it's called "Hulder". I've read it, and I definitely recommend it! You can buy it at any bookstore in Norway, and it's really, really worth a read :D I LOVED it, and I can't wait for the rest of the series :nod:

The "Kire" series also have a Facebook page with more info and updates, which you can find here: www.facebook.com/kireserien

I loved working on this cover, and I am extremely happy that I was chosen to illustrate it! :la: :aww:
I hope you guys like the cover as well, and if you're Norwegian; be sure to get your copy of the book! :boogie:





Illustrated by: Elise M. Syvertsen / oomizuao 2013
May only be used by me (Elise M.S.) and author Tonje Tornes and her publisher.

Love your art. It was the reason i felt tempted to buy the book in the first place. The story was great too. ^^ I hope you are chosen as the artist for the next book cover. :)

This certainly looks incredible. I'm always one to follow recommendations of books since I'm a heavy reader and usually love what I'm recommended. I wish I could read it but it's in Norwegian I'm guessing? I only know English and vague French. ;n; You did a wonderful job illustrating this. It looks amazing and very foreboding. Well done!
