It was such a pleasure to work with my good friend and publishing partner, Nancy George, on Nourish & Flourish Vol 2. This was the "chocolate" issue and we had a great time creating content and recipes. The pressure was on to make something beautiful for our readers and celebrate the holiday season.
We love wrap-around covers! It's such a challenge to construct an image that works perfectly with the text. It took us about two weeks to gather all of the chocolate. Once we had the concept completed, it was about balancing the elements visually. This was my first national and international cover. I'm very proud of it!
Here are a few other shots from the issue.
