My friend Reggie Lutz wrote a terrific collection of surreal short stories, called Aliens In The Soda Machine and Other Strange Tales. She asked me last year if I would do the cover for it. I ended up having a crazy summer and fall, but managed to finish it some time in I believe December.
I worked this illustration in gouache and watercolour, based partly on a Hieronymous Bosch painting that I saw in a book on my friend Lillian's bookshelf. It took a while to work in the concept but it came out pretty interesting. I'd love to do more book covers in the future.
