Oak

Not one of my better hikes since a little acrophobia kicked in on the drop-offs. I also picked up a hitchhiker, a tick that hadn’t yet stuffed its face when I found it. Other than those two memorable things, it was lovely, and the company just perfect.

The Wheel Diver

The Wheel Diver

A few layouts from The Wheel Diver, Ashley Schwellenbach’s third book. This 488-pager has been so much fun to design. Michael Arras made it somewhat easy by sending the 21 chapter illustrations one at a time so that there was breathing room between them. But there weren’t any sketches, which meant I had to run with whatever showed up.

For some perverse reason I thoroughly enjoyed working like this.
