book jacket design & process for creating artwork for SEARCHING FOR ZION, by Emily Raboteau.
  • Here is a book jacket I had the pleasure of working on for my dear friend Emily through Grove/Atlantic Publishers in New York. I wanted to show a bit of the process of creating the artwork
    as well as some of the jacket manifestations that we decided to scrap. 
    The imagery was loosely based on hand-made barbershop signs seen throughout African cities.
  • the linoleum block cuttings i made for the artwork...
  • the first printing of the cover art...
  • watercolor prints of the author's name
  • some of the scrapped, earlier versions of the cover art.
  • Thank you for taking a look!
