When I was asked to do the cover for Abraham Lincoln after having wanted to be asked for what seemed like a long time, I made the mistake of telling everyone I know. I was rather excited. But telling everyone about it put a lot of pressure on me. I started working on it right away, and I have been working on it for a much longer time than I usually take.
I think I'm done now. I might change little things before it goes to press, but I love putting things I've done here to find out what people think. It's one of my favorite things about having a blog, especially when it comes to poetry and graphics. People see things in both that the author is unaware of.
Abraham Lincoln is one of my favorite journals. It's new, but it is fantastic. I am honored to be a part of it. It makes me happy to be in the po-biz. I've always been lucky as an artist. I think it's because I really, truly dig it.
