New book cover...
posted:
Peter, er, I mean Mr. Cusack (He is the art director, so i need to use Mr. or Sir as my salutation..) commissioned me to do this cover for him. He is the ideal client to work for. It is for a book of poetry titled- "Through a Gate of Trees". Part of my inspiration for this cover was the "circus trees". These trees were shaped by a S.F. bay area arborist from the 1940's to the 1960's, and are now on display at Bonfante Gardens in the south bay. Many of them perished but a few made it through...
This particular circus tree is made up of eight elms woven into one.
I believe the tree on the right is still living, and is in Bonfante Gardens.
