Belltown Mystery Series Book Cover Art

In the mid 2000’s I did the cover art for a popular young adult series called The Belltown Mysteries.
Written by author T.M. Murphy, they featured a young private detective named Orville Jakes and take place on Cape Cod.
The books were hugely popular, especially among reluctant readers. Now out of print, they remain in demand.

I used Prismacolor pencils to illustrate the covers. Click to enlarge.
