I apologize in advance for it.
The cover illustration was done by an artist named Nick Backes, whose work I’ve just recently encountered. He is very, very good at drawing the male form, and his dudes embody a certain 80s sensibility that is very clearly of an era that hasn’t dated well yet still worth a look, if well-coifed, Zach Morris-y types do it for you.
Some of it verges on camp…
Yet there’s still something there. To more successful creative endeavors in the next 364 days.
