So forgive the relative lack of posting, as I am keen to get this finished before the end of the … Continue reading Halfway

The actual book is done. Edited, refined and ready for consumption. So, now onto the parts of the process: Covers. They're interesting, as a lot of great covers are appropriate to their medium. A great album cover isn't necessarily a great book cover or even a comic book. My personal favourites with the latter are … Continue reading The Ron Brandywood Capers – 2023
