The Artist Behind the Cover Art for “Throw Away Kitten”

Throw Away Kitten Candy McMudd children bookQuarter Castle Publishing has received many compliments about the artwork on the cover of Throw Away Kitten. When they hear it was done by a teenager, they are more impressed.

Meet Sam Smith, author of Boys Ride, Too. She’s been creating art since before she could write her name. Her early works, mostly of horses, revealed she had an eye for detail. By the time she was ten, she could accurately sketch a horse in any position in about five minutes.

She created the kitten on the cover of Throw Away Kitten when she was 15 years old. It was done in pastel on sketching paper. It was done for fun and because she loved kittens.
