New book cover art ~DOGGED





I’m writing a book of short stories, fantasy/horror with one common theme – you’ll never guess what that is! LOL.

I’m aiming for an October publication date, more will be said about this. And it will be available to buy via Amazon.




I illustrated the cover art by hand in my small sketchbook, scanned it in and worked on the graphics all night. Because I did it horizontally – and I don’t mean lying in bed! – and not vertically I’m going to have to add ‘things’ to the finished book cover. Novels are portrait rather than landscape. ๐Ÿ™„

I had fun designing an abstract kind of cover with plenty of you-know-whats and there’s some Art Deco elements there amongst the chaos.




This here (above), isn’t the complete cover.

About Oscar Dandelion

Hi, I'm Faith McCord, writer of the Oscar Dandelion books. I love reading, writing, watching films, looking at architecture and general design, embroidery (especially Elizabethan), spending time with my family. I used to enjoy long walks, bodybuilding, going out, however, since my injury my mobility is seriously impaired, so I'm more of a home-body now. I'm interested in meeting other indie / pro writers, so do say 'Hello' ! :)

    Are the colors digital or you filled them in yourself? I really like the art; my 2ยข of opinion though maybe is to add one more artistic thing to the cover relevant to the general theme but seemingly ‘unrelated’ visually at first glance, like a mobster idk ๐Ÿ˜‚ would maybe make most of the art stand out more in contrast. I hope that makes sense, but it’s by no means necessary ๐Ÿ˜Š

    hope you’re well! ๐Ÿ˜
