The second in my “Pandemic Insect” series. Experimenting with illustration and typography. This one…Seems like a YA novel from the 1980’s. The inside cover flap would read: Uncle Ant was just your average everyday oddball Uncle, until the day he came home riding an actual giant ant!
This book doesn’t exist. During lock down I thought I’d illustrate the covers to books I’d like to read. In this book, grasshopper warriors terrorize the planet Tenar while the catch phrase “Summer is coming” is bantered about quite a bit. But seriously… creating new illustration “looks?” or “Styles” while we sit inside avoiding Covid while mumbling about the fact that “Fall is coming!” Next up? I’m not sure…but Dung Beetle is on the list for sure!
A rejected New Yorker cartoon from a “slightly” simpler time when we had no idea what was coming. For the record, Frasier was an okay show from the looks of the few episodes
I saw. It was not “must see tv” for me personally. During that time period I was
only interested in keeping up with The X-Files. I guess the truth could still out there
if it’s not… “fake news.”
