On The Cover
Illustrator Brian Allen took our vague idea about an anniversary cake and turned it into a bold, lively image. Allen created the cover by drawing in Manga Studio and Adobe Photoshop using the Wacom Cintiq, a digital tablet display. His freelance illustration company, Flyland Designs, is based in Bellefonte, Pa.
