Unused Book Cover

In the early stages of it's writing, my talented friend Don asked me if I would come up with a cover concept for his upcoming book, which eventually became A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. So I sketched a few weeks and came back to him with this. He loved it, but as the book took shape and changed tone, it was clear my idea was becoming less and less right for the cover. To prove that point, in the end they went with a big bicycle tire. So, yeah. But Don and the publisher were nice enough to have me illustrate a small story inside the book, and I spent that money so fast you wouldn't believe it.

Anyways, I figure it'd be fun to finally show it off a bit. (And you better believe I made myself the director.)
