I recently spent two solid days writing for In the Shadow of the King. To give myself a break, I began toying with a new logo design for the book.
There are no known portraits of Sir Francis Bryan in existence. Therefore, I browsed through a selection of "unknown males" painted by famed Tudor artist Hans Holbein to come up with ideas. Bryan lost his left eye during a joust in 1526, after which he wore a rakish eye patch. I was careful to crop the portraits I chose in order to conceal his face above the nose.

I'm making good progress with In the Shadow of the King. Yet, as always, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the spurt of creativity continues.
