Day 2: The Four Days of Ford

Continuing the Four Days of Ford:

Just completed -- the cover illustration for Jeffrey Ford's THE PHYSIOGNOMY, releasing in trade paperback from Golden Gryphon Press in fall '08. Materials: Oil painting / calipers / vine, roses & morning glory / acrylic / ink / wood / found objects / hand-built assemblage / no digital.

The calipers were found in Spitalfields Market/East London back in April. Traci and I were honeymooning there and touring Jack the Ripper's old stomping grounds. We had the best time that day. I think Traci found these calipers. I knew they'd be perfect for THE PHYSIOGNOMY. We still crave the little pies at the Square Pie Company in Spitalfields....steak & Guinness....mmmmmm....more Ford tomorrow....
