Mahalo guys! I had fun working on it.

It was really interesting hearing people's reaction to the imagery sans the title. Most of my friends outside of Hawaii interpreted the cover as depicting a woman bearing a heavy burden, while the majority of my friends from Hawaii interpreted it as a woman of power rising out of the mountain.

I definitely saw her as emerging from the volcano.

Yes.. would be great to see more skilled female professionals.. possibly with international background?

Great work, Dan!
