Once You Notice, You Can't Stop

Siren song, page 203:

"The woman was tall and statuesque, with long, shiny, raven-colored hair, creamy coffee-colored skin, and big cat-like emerald eyes."

I don't know what Ursu had in mind, but the illustration at the top of the chapter is probably not it. I understand that authors have no control, and that illustrations are often commissioned without the illustrator getting to read the text. But that little picture, whatever it's called, is not of a woman with black hair and coffee skin. Sorry, I can't scan the picture, and I can't find it online, but I'll try to photograph it.

I don't get it. Why?
