I've worked with Blake Hausladen for about a year on a series of novel covers. The last of those designs is for The Vastness, book three of The Vestral Series. One of the components for the cover design was raging water. I am from "hurricane country" (eastern North Carolina) originally and I have seen my fair share of raging ocean. This piece stands alone as homage to that.

If by your art, my dearest father, you have
Put the wild waters in this roar, allay them.
The sky, it seems, would pour down stinking pitch,
But that the sea, mounting to the welkin's cheek,
Dashes the fire out.
- William 'Bill' Shakespeare Tempest (1.2.1-5)
