    1. thanks for the question sara! i sometimes have a vague idea of what i want (kind of like a theme and maybe a color scheme every once in a while), but sometimes i just wing it. i collect a *ton* of pictures, usually centered around how i visualize a book’s themes, messages, motifs, symbols, and characters and then i choose a few and experiment with coloring, font, and other elements.

      1. I’m thinking of trying my hand at making edits, but I find it very hard to find pictures that look like what I want in my head. Does that make sense? haha Do you use Google or something else? And what kind of things do you search for?

      2. i understand. you kind of just have to train yourself to have an eye for it.but i’m sure you do. i use google, pinterest, unsplash, and pexels. i think for this one i used a ton of search terms. i used “arabian,” “arabian woman,” “scheherezade,” “pakistani,” “pakistani bride” and lots of other stuff to give you an example of my process.

      3. I was trying to do one for Yelena from Poison Study but it’s really hard to find a long black braid from the back haha. I managed to do one for Manon Blackbeak which isn’t that good but I posted it on my Tumblr anyway. I’ll keep working on it. Thanks for your help!

      4. p.s. i’d try google image searching “braid tumblr” then scrolling through to find a black or brown braid. that should give you some good results 🙂
