New jacket for Random House

We created the cover illustration for “Sisters of Glass” by S. Hemphill, a Young Readers book set in 15th-century Venice, published by Random House Children Books. It’s a story of two sisters who are bound by their father’s last will and testament to live their lives in conflict with their own desires and destiny. Maria wants to be a glassblower working in the family business; Giovanna wants to marry nobility and live the life accorded the wife of a nobleman.
