At J.King Projects we create YA Science-Fiction illustrated novels. We started out small with one image per chapter in our debut novel Reliance, and quickly expanded to 35+ illustrations for our second release InCross.
Every illustration is meticulously crafted and rendered with extreme precision, care and love.
