Anyway, Kitsune Noir Poster Club's first project is a dream job: take one of your favorite books and redesign the cover. Sounds fun, right? It's equal parts terrifying and inspiring. I had a ton of fun working through this one, and in an interview on Kitsune Noir I'll go through a bit of the creative process of making the poster.
Who knew that making an image to represent an existential, non-sensical, non-linear science fiction novel about an intergalactic colonist and prisoner of war would be difficult? Poo tee weet. Who thought that fitting space and war and four-dimensional beings into one picture would take some time? I didn't. I didn't really think my selection through whenever I chose it. But, now that I'm done and happy with the results, I'm glad I didn't. But, so many ideas died in the process. So it goes.
