new work - cover illustration for Edible Silicon Valley (and pie!)

penelope dullaghan - cover illustration for edible silicon valley Hello! I'm here to share another cover illustration! This time it was for Edible Silicon Valley. The editor emailed me and asked if I'd do something bright and fun that had to do with the idea of "pie* in the sky". She said this was their first ever illustrated cover, so I knew I had to do something really inspired.

*(Side note: and let's not forget about my affinity for pie! I've mentioned it here more than once that pie and I are friends. In fact, for my wedding we opted to skip the cake and go for TWENTY pies instead. Best decision ever!)

Anyway, I showed her 3 sketch options, and she chose this one. I love how it turned out and the editor just emailed a few days ago and said that she's heard rumblings of "best cover ever"! I blush. Better go celebrate with some pie! :)
