Another Life's Author



Happy Mermay! She isn't a mermaid actually, but she's in the ballpark!

This was my final project for my digital illustration class. I made a book cover for my short fantasy story "Another Life's Author" (which I wrote for my fiction class in the same semester lol).

It's told from the perspective of a university student who goes to study abroad in America and meets a charming, mysterious girl who asks for help retrieving her coat from her ex. From there, it's pretty obvious what's going on if you already know what a selkie is (and if you don't, that makes it a lot more fun to read actually). The whole plot is my standard brand of hurt/comfort, and while I would prefer to get this story published traditionally in an anthology or magazine, I am also kind of considering converting it into a playable visual novel. But that remains to be seen.
