The Gee Bees Collected Edition Cover

Steve asked me if I’d lik/sco do the cover for the hardback collected edition and I duly accepted. My first impulses wer/sco go for something very clean and possibly typographic but w/scrlked about and I ended up doing some drawing, that’s right … DRAWING. I drew out some old cases we have at home and inked them before scanning the in and manipulating them slightly. Then I coloured them in Photoshop and added textures and stuff before heading into InDesign. There I laid out the front cover text, the titles and credits etc., and knocked together a back cover based on an old piece of college work which I was reminded of when lettering the penultimate issue (Gideon dons a Union Jack scarfsco cover his face). I’m quite happy with the final thing, the text on the front is not my usual style as its tied into the design stuff Steve did on the rest of the book, I had more of licenc/sco play on the back cover text though and I think it shows.
