That aside, I am just happy that I was able to get back in touch with my publisher. The concept drawings of family which I did earlier this year is still valid(I am surprised!), and there are still things needed to be worked. They stressed on the blacklines of the cover page, and they gave me the general idea of how the author wanted it, so here's my take on it.

(Blackline version in ink, to be approved)
I am not sure if they will accept it so we'll see.
Thank you all so much for your comments. I really appreciate all of them and your time. I will try my best to spend more time drawing. My moleskine is once again being ignored due to other more significant responsibilities....sigh.
