Hey everyone! Will Staehle here, the creator and illustrator of Quirk’s Warren the 13th series. When I’m not busy working on Warren, I run a design studio, Unusual Co., out of Seattle. I’ve designed all sorts of fun things over the years, but the majority of my work continues to be in the world of book cover design. I’ve been really fortunate to have designed covers for some amazing authors, like Michael Crichton, Stephen King, Michael Chabon, V. E. Schwab, Ernest Cline, Andy Weir, Warren Ellis, Christopher Buckley, and so many more. I’ve never kept count, but I’d estimate that I’ve designed over a thousand covers so far in my career.

So you might assume that when it came time to design my very own book cover for Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye, it would be my absolute dream project, and you would be 100 percent . . .
