Jackson Speed!

Author Rob Peecher recently got in touch with me regarding the artwork for his Civil War series.

The story revolves around self professed coward, Jackson Speed as he lies, cheats and bed hops his way through the American Civil War. I’m a sucker for a roguish character, so when Rob asked me to help him rework the covers on his series I quickly agreed.

As usual I worked hard to create interesting lighting and shadows (that’s kind of my thing) and i think it worked out pretty well. I had great fun designing all the details for both Union and Confederate uniforms (there’s a hint of what happens in the story!) and Rob was really helpful with providing me with lots of historically accurate reference materials.

Rob was delighted with the final result and the book should be available on amazon soon.
