Marsh Illustration

I drew cover illustration for this little book. 

There are will-o'-the-wisps and few peaky trees - a marsh. This is a subject matter I really hadn't thought of before. With my drawing style there usually is a lot on the picture left to imagine also so after I drew this picture I asked around the tricky question: "What do you see on this picture?" I like imagination - but sometimes it helps when there is something recognizable on the picture I must admit - when it comes to illustrating books for example. Maybe there are exceptions such as poetry... Or sci-fi perhaps? Anyway - the test subjects gave satisfying answers - so on the book cover this picture went.
