The Carson City School District is pleased to announce that Carson High School Senior Edwin Iza, 17, has been awarded a contract with publishing company Three Ravens for his graphic design work in creating a winning book cover for “The Raven and the Crow: The Gray Throne,” the second book in a new six-book epic fantasy novel series.
Two students were recognized for the work they created as part of Ms. Patricia Ababio’s Graphic Design course at Carson High School. Four of Ababio’s classes entered the design competition. Edwin Iza’s design will be the cover of The Gray Throne book while Morigan Ruffner’s design won second place.
Written by Michael K. Falciani, the pseudonym of Mr. Kinkade DeJoseph, a teacher at Bordewich Bray Elementary School, the first book in the series, “Dark Storm Rising”, was released on June 15, 2021. Earlier this year, in In March, two CHS seniors, 17-year-old Jaden Anderson and 18-year-old Damien King, were awarded publishing deals for their work creating winning designs for the cover of “Dark Storm Rising” and the logo of the complete series of six books.
The teachers and the publisher recognized the excellent learning experience of the graphic design students. Iza secured a contract with Three Ravens Publishing Company for her work and a chance to pursue her career in graphic design.
