Journal 17

I am writing a novel, Deeds of the Night Sparrow, about the son of an immigrant family, who, while dreaming, meets his unknown grandmother who teaches him to fly in his dreams. As any good designer would, I’m putting the cart before the horse and designing the book jacket before the book is published, much less finished. Herein are some of the cursory book jacket designs and typographic forms. Also you will see brand identity concepts for the new branch of the US military, Space Force, evoked by the less-than-inspiring designs that were proposed as well the accepted logo.

There are more explorations of the human form randomly interspersed with design projects, and of course, my mainstay, free-association doodles.
