There’s a lot of soul-searching going on in Jersey Devil Press this month. Romance, identity crises, innocent sexual exploration, aliens in disguise, dust devils turning young girls into motes….. Yes, we’re getting deep.
And topping it all off is cover art by returning artist Jon Snoek (full disclosure: I’m lucky to call him my brother). The painting is part of an illustrated book about a boy and his robot — which sounds a lot simpler than the book really is. It’s actually an epic journey of loss and discovery and friendship and community. But this sentimental painting is among my favorites in the whole still-in-progress book. And you saw it at JDP first, gang.
