It's printed!! I recently had the amazing opportunity to work on my first book cover design, and now it's officially published and available! The book itself is a whirlwind journey of a cold case team that followed the elusive tracks of the infamous D.B. Cooper.
For those of you that don't know the story of Cooper, he's somewhat of an American folk hero and nothing short of a criminal mastermind. He famously hijacked a 747 in 1971 along with $200,000 in cash, and then jumped out of the plane with the cash strapped to his body and parachuted into the abyss, never to be found...or was he? You'll have to read the book to find out more, but the work done by author Thomas J. Colbert and his team is quite compelling.
It was a privilege to be contacted by Tom's wife, Dawna, to create the artwork that would set the tone for one of the greatest crime mysteries of America's history. The one thing that was for sure is that this image needed to be mysterious. It needed to leave the viewer asking, "who is this guy? What's he up to?" And with that in mind, the cover was created. I'm incredibly stoked to have had this opportunity and proud of the result. Definitely give the book, which is available on Amazon, a read and check out the History Channel documentary D.B. Cooper: Case Closed? which is based on the work of the team that gathered the evidence presented in the book.
