The Coffins of Little Hope
Last year I illustrated this bejeweled dragonfly for the cover
of a novel called "The Coffins of Little Hope" by Timothy Schaffert.
The cover was beautifully designed by Kathleen Lynch.
It will be released this spring.

Dragonflies truly are flying jewels aren't they.
This beauty has an almost Australian Aboriginal edge to his colouring and is [as is all of your work] a gift for the eyes.
Congratulations on yet another beautiful piece being chosen for a publication,

Hi Gennine
I enajoy your blog. Your watercolors are wanderful. I was wondering what kind of nib do you use? I want to use acrylik ink, but it is too thick and it sticks to my nibs. Thanks a lot!

It's fascinating how you made the parts of it, and they put it together! I had no idea that some covers were done that way!

I'm the author of the book, and I'm blown-away by the beauty of the design by Kathleen and by Geninne's gorgeous illustration. The dragonfly references a hairpin, actually--it's worn by the narrator, an 83-year-old obituary writer named Essie Myles. (The hairpin shows up frequently throughout the book, and becomes a rather important part of Essie's identity.) Thank you, Geninne, for so imaginatively and masterfully incorporating so many of the novel's themes into your illustration. --Timothy
