In the daytime I design book covers, I make titles and authors names a little big bigger and change typefaces to other typefaces. I also change the sweet sweet colours to other colours, such as red to yellow, or blue.

After my wife qualifies as a lawyer and gets a really good job I will retire and spend my days drawing pictures of imps and devils tap dancing on suburban rooftops.

This shot is great, because it shows how much inspiration and trial are involved in creation.

Also, because it has your face in it.

I agree with Gavin. Perfection.

Are those some of your works lying about or bits of inspiration?

@mackle yes the covers are mine … though the tatty penguin, Chip Kidd are trying to be inspiration.
