DAW asked me to create a cover with a female Erroll Flynn: charming, cocky swashbuckling, and deadly - but definitely one of the good guys. My friend, Kelly, was perfect for the role, but she had appeared on the cover of the same series in the previous year. It seemed best to work with Kelly again but to change her appearance. I usually use reference, but this time I just winged it on the face. Many have asked whether I intended to make it look like my sister, C.J. I didn't. Not consciously. Unconsciously? Maybe just a little.
