Have you seen the EverWilde…? 🙂 Created by Jess Lilly of Curious Little Market, they are just pure magic…
I’ve been following Jess for a while and just fallen in love with these guys. The woodland vibe and enchanting imagination of all of Jess’s creations just sings from her Instagram feed and website. Looking through them all brings instant joy.
So I am super excited to announce that we have been working on a book together! It’s still in the very early stages right now but coming soon will be a beautiful little illustrated story sharing how the EverWilde came to be.
Jess has had a genius idea for how to create and publish the books herself. I love that we are able to do this without worrying about publishers or agents. It’s a really lovely way to work and they are going to be very special, tactile and magical little works of art. We are just sorting the final layout and details to go into production! It’s always a bit of a scary stage, wondering how things will turn out, but the sneak peeks I’ve had of the finished item are wonderful.
Here’s a sneak peek at the first cover design:

Eeeeeeeeeeep! You guys I am so excited to share with you the official cover for The EverWilde! This is such a dream come true for me. Sam Goodlet @samdrawsthings was so amazing to work with. I couldn’t imagine taking on this project with anyone else. Her creative energy is truly inspiring and she has brought the story of The EverWilde to life in the most magical way ✨ #TheEverWilde #dreamsreallydocometrue #theydoexist #sneekpeek #comingtoaforestnearyou
I’m thrilled that the reaction has been so positive – these are iconic creatures and I am desperate to do them justice. I’ll be sharing more news and artwork as and when I can. 🙂
