Created for the cover of Dragon+ digital D&D magazine with art director Daniel Ketchum. This was a short deadline cover that was to tie into the bookcover I did for Candlekeep Mysteries. The image description was fairly broad, needing to convey the gist of Candlekeep Mysteries without depicting any particular scenes from the book. This was tricky as I didn't actually know what happens in the stories, so I tried showing a collection of subjects that would convey the general impressions of mystery, books, stories, and fantasy adventure.
