Empowering fantasy art for book covers & anywhere magical stories are found...
My name is Rachel Perciphone and I create empowering fantasy art that encourages the viewer to confidently explore their own stories. I illustrate strong, diverse characters within magical and colorful worlds for book covers and anywhere good stories are found. I am most heavily inspired by mythology, fairytales, folklore, and fantasy. I also find a lot of inspiration in music, nature, and ethereal subjects, as well as comics and science fiction. The foundation of my work begins with a detailed pencil drawing and I use a mix of digital and traditional media to paint the finished piece. I use symbolism, shape, and supernatural elements to explore narratives, emotions, and showcase the idea that beauty and inner strength is both multifaceted and plentiful.
If you need a beautiful, professional book cover or illustration and want to see your stories and ideas visualized in a way that inspires viewers, intrigues readers, and makes you proud to display, then let's collaborate! I am available for freelance work and private commissions. Some of the work displayed in my portfolio is available for licensing. Please contact me for a quote by sending me an email with a summary of your book or project, along with budget and timeline details.
"I hired Rachel for a small project for a big client. I needed my small team of artists to knock it out of the park, and Rachel absolutely did. She communicated well, consistently, and on time. She took feedback, asked great questions, and delivered on time every week. The client was nothing short of blown away by her work and loved working with her. I will try to hire Rachel again for whatever opportunity comes next, you should too."
