Water chasing water

I was very honored to work with the wonderful art director Sunyoung Park from Kaya Press early this year. I finished a spread book cover for the Seattle based poet Koon Woon's new book.
"Water Chasing Water"

Here are the sketches.



We decided to replace the king with a Chinese emperor

but we ended up choosing the first sketch.




And here is the final copy with color

Thank you Koon, I'm very honored to work on your book cover. It's very interesting. As a Chinese immigrant my self I felt I can relate to your poetry very well. Thank you!
