Making of a Classic Chapbook Cover

Immeasurable thanks to illustrator Mike Edholm, whose radiant artistry completed my aesthetic vision, and without whom my poetry chapbook, Old School Superhero Loves a Good Wristwatch, surely would have been left uncapped and wanting.

The identity of this individual must remain anonymous for the sake of himself and his loved ones. Let it be enough that he was quite kind to sit for the posture. [Yes, said in jest.]

Huzzah to Dancing Girl Press for handling all those gigantic images that went into publisher Kristy Bowen's DGP dropbox. This poet could not be more proud or more jubilant. So immensely fortunate.

Quick, Blatant Self-Promotion Post

I'm so thrilled to share that my poem series, "Super Dan Comics Question Box Series" has now been created into a beautiful chapbook, Old School Superhero Loves a Good Wristwatch. It will be joining the amazing catalog of chapbooks published by Dancing Girl Press. Hit here for a direct link to my chapbook's information and purchase page at the press's website. And a few photos taken by publisher Kristy Bowen, as the chapbook is coming off the presses:

The cover illustration and design is custom-made for me by Michael Edholm. Check out his website here. His work is phenomenal. Soon I'll be posting on this blog a complete pictorial process of how he drew the cover. It's pretty darn cool.

I am very excited about this. The Old School Superhero, he flies!
