Decided to compile some redesigned book covers I did over the past few years. I’ve been so busy lately that I forgot how much I enjoy doing these things. I hope I can take a break from everything for a while and get back on designing things just for the enjoyment of it!

Beautiful!

Reluctant Reader Wednesday: What Happened to Cass McBride? by Gail Giles

Much of this story is told from the point of view of a girl who’s been buried alive.  She doesn’t know where she is, what time it is, or what day it is.  She doesn’t know who would do this to her, or more importantly why.  
The gripping description of her imprisonment is woven into a larger story in which we learn the identity of her kidnapper and why that person targeted Cass McBride.

Animated artwork by Rebecca Mock

Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.

Buy This Book: Box Brown’s ‘Andre The Giant: Life And Legend’
By Chris Sims
f you’d asked me three months ago what my most anticipated graphic novel of 2014 was, I could’ve given you the answer without even having to think about it: Box Brown‘s Andre the Giant: Life and Legend, a comic book biography of one of the most famous professional wrestlers of all time. Admittedly, I’m right smack in the center of the target audience for that book, but there’s so much about the man that’s fascinating, and Brown’s work as a Xeric Grant and Ignatz Award-winning cartoonist is top notch — it’s something I feel like I would’ve been interested in even if I was going into it cold, with no knowledge whatsoever of the world of professional wrestling.
The book isn’t out until May, but the book’s publisher, First Second, sent over a review copy and I couldn’t wait to read it. It’s the sort of book that I knocked out in one sitting, and it lived up to every hope I had for it. It’s not just one of my favorite graphic novels of the year, but it’s also one of my favorite comic biographies of all time.
