Super excited to be in the most recent Hospital Brut (special Asiatroma Japan issue) by Le Dernier Cri. I've been a longtime fan of this awesome french publisher/collective, so it's an honor to be included in one of their books, especially with the likes of Stu Mead, Gary Panter, and Jonathon Rosen. You can buy this limited edition, serigraphed book here. warning: book and website are NSFW.

About 6 months ago I worked on a couple of book covers for Little, Brown & Co. They were just released, so I can finally show them off. Here are the two final covers which look great with the clean sans serif type treatment, thanks to AD and designer Keith Hayes.

The Collector cover was a winner immediately, but Daniel Martin went through a few changes before we hit on the winning design. I like them all, but in the end the publisher decided to go with a much cleaner and innocuous image, which I think still turned out fantastic. Here are a few of the ones that didn't make it.
