Shear Murder | Harlequin Books

I never thought I’d illustrate a book cover on a hairdresser sleuth, but here you go! This story focused on a murder at a Florida wedding and our detective, “trying to unmask a killer who refuses to cut her any slack.” Heyoo! Thanks for the fun art direction Kathleen Oudit!

This illustration was inked first and then I added more colour digitally. It was fun drawing all these tendrils of hair!
