Last month book design blog 50 Watts ran an interesting contest. Contestants were asked to create their own book cover designs for their favorite novels or books, in the fashion of vintage Polish book covers featured on the blog. As an added bonus, this contest didn’t call for any type of entry fee, and I was eager to participate. I chose to design and illustrate a cover for the novel “Jailbird” by Kurt Vonnegut. I translated the title and the phrase “a novel” to give it that extra Polish flair. I was also excited to see my book cover listed in the judges honorable mention category of the contest. This was a super fun project to take part in, and 50 Watts is an incredible blog filled with volumes of inspirational visual material. A great experience all around.

I’ve opened a web store here. I plan on supplying it with personal projects, hand transferred posters, and some other types of prints. Below is the newest edition, an 8.5″ x 11″ print made with xerox transfer and desktop printing.
For an upcoming group show here in Brooklyn, I decided to paint a Metro North ticket I used on a recent hiking trip I took with Melissa. This painting is 22″ x 30″, gouache and colored pencil on paper.
