A cover at last!

I have always wanted to design a book cover. Not for some fat document that will be distributed to people who will mostly chuck it out or file it. For an actual BOOK. Ideally fiction. I want to be able to go into Fullers Bookshop or Dymocks and see my work in there amongst the Faber & Fabers and Penguins and Jonathan Capes and Phaidons.

Patsy Crawford has asked me to design the cover of her new book of short stories called Blood of a Distant Island. She wrote a good review of a CD-ROM I worked on that dealt with similar landscapes and themes to her book. (see still below) I have just finished the manuscript and I am very excited about the job. I'll post some designs here when I get into it.
