Good ideas usually get better with a little help. This was my first cover concept for “Jump!” I wanted to see what the main character, Barb, might look like while I was still working out the story. This image really stuck with me but it was suggested that I take another stab at it. The word Jump… well, didn’t jump. Now wouldn’t that have been awkward. letting go of an idea isn't always easy, but I'm always amazed at how much better they get when they're challenged a little. I'm glad I had the opportunity to re-think this cover.
