It also has two of the covers done previously. The top-most one (with the dragon) is the first cover, and the second is the mass-production cover. There is a third cover, which features the actors from the television show based on this book series.

Uncle Time never worked, did not have a house, and never asked for anything. He was a strange being, who seemed to hold a magical sense about himself. He rarely spoke, but would offer strange help to those who needed it. A rumor is that he himself is Anansi the Spider, owner of all stories.
Once, a young man was trying to get into college, but kept failing the entrance exam. He was very distraught, and went into the forest to kill himself. As he walked, he noticed Uncle Time sitting in a tall tree. The young man climbed the tree to sit with him, and Uncle Time offered him some bananas. As they ate, they dropped the banana peals on the ground. A homeless man was walking passed, and after catching a glance at the banana peals dived for them, devouring them. The boy saw he was not so unfortunate, for he was not poor and starving like this unfortunate soul, and decided to live.

Similar idea for this one, but i have the "building" included. its stylistic and abstract, the walls being transparent and such.

"Today, my town is experiencing a flood. I was thankful last night when I saw on the news that it wasn't supposed to affect the part of town that I live in. I woke up this morning and walked out my back door. There was someone canoeing in my back yard. FML"

There were two brothers, Tony and Duke. Tony always seemed down on his luck, while his brother was always lucky. Tony's wife left him, he contently lost jobs, and could not hold onto money for long. Duke on the other hand had a lovely wife and beautiful daughter, and always had money for his family.
One day Duke passed away. Tony had promised long ago to take care of his daughter if anything happened. But with no money, it seemed impossible.
Then one late night, while strolling on the beach contemplating how to earn money, Tony felt a slight nudge toward the water. He made his way closer to the waves, and he felt the push again. Tony looked around, but no one was there. He got on his knees next to the water. "What shall I do?" He thought.
Suddenly he looked down, and underneath the water were hundreds of pearls! He began to scoop them up quickly, and no matter how many he took there seemed to be hundreds more. Tony was so grateful, now he could take care of his niece!
But Tony looked again, and it was not his hands grabbing the pearls, but a pair of floating hands in front of his! Tony smiled, his heart filled with joy. His brother had used his luck one last time to help Tony.
I don't know if the extra pair of hands clutter the piece too much or not
NOTE; Only the sketch will be completely digital. The final will be the same as the rest of my thesis :)

A quick refresher of the story;
Late one night, a bus driver finds twin young girls waiting on the side of the road. He offers a ride back to their home, which they show it at the top of a long hill. As he drove the girls, he tried a few times to make conversation, but the girls continued to stay silent, staring forward. As the bus driver stopped in front of the house, the front porch door opened, and an elderly woman stepped out. The girls ran to her, and they slipped quietly into the house shutting the door behind them.
The bus driver found out the next day, that no one had lived in that house for over 50 years. He had brought home two good spirits that had been waiting to return
