Globus by Sashie Masakatsu

I dont want to alarm you, but if I had the ability to roll up everything in the world all Katamari-style, I’d totally do it. Just a word of warning. Luckily for you and the rest of humanity, I can live vicariously through the paintings of Sashie Masakatsu, which depict small planets of compacted urban space floating by their own gravity amidst the ruins of the earth (not my fault, though).

19th Century Author Biographies book cover series by Hilary Gaby

Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, & Mark Twain
 
The concept for this biographical book cover series was centered around the author’s place of origin, and features elements that directly reference those places. A papercraft technique was used to create a three dimensional landscape scene which would enforce the idea of the author’s setting and help achieve a sense of cohesiveness through out the series.
I chose to incorporate fences and other small icons to depict the author’s life and to help illustrate what kind of environment these literary legends were exposed to and how that had direct influence on  some of the most famous stories in history.

Damn these are handsome.

When you get a book contract, it says in the contract what the book’s going to be about, so you don’t come back a year later and say, “You know, I got distracted by boats, and so I’m giving you a manual for a boat,” right?

So the contract said that I would deliver a book about an interactive game designer with no face. I like that.

John Darnielle, discussing Wolf In White Van in Gawker Review of Books

The song that inspired the title Wolf in White Van. All you have to do is play it backwards!

JD’s interview on Soundcheck has much more interesting info about the work (e.g., the song that inspired the book title, the hearing problem that led to him playing piano more).
