ask bud! cover rough

Ask Bud cover rough-photo-blogHere’s the rough finished cover for ASK BUD!, complete with half finished corrections, unerased pencil lines, smears,  and paste-ups made with actual paper slips pasted on to the piece of Bristol I used for the drawing and hand lettering.  Yes, youthful readers, that is why they call it a paste-up. (Although I used a glue stick instead of the conventional wax or rubber cement.)

The font is 120 point P22 Parrish Roman Bold with 26 point spaces between the letters. Thanks to Matt Feazell who taught me that little layout artist’s trick many years ago.

    It almost looks like a campaign poster… bold, simple, and memorable design.

    Thanks. It’s rather different from anything I’ve ever tried and I quite like it so far.
