Patch Designs for Girlchild by Tupelo Hassman

Published in the book Girlchild by Tupelo Hassman

I had the wonderful opportunity to do some design work for Tupelo Hassman, author of Girlchild (Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2012), last year and here are the final results. If you follow my blog a little you'll know that I was sick for a bit last year, and unfortunately that happened right in the middle of doing this work for the patch designs. I have to say I'm more than thankful for Tupelo's patience and stellar art direction during this project.

Girlchild is the debut novel of Tupelo Hassman, but it reads like it's written by a seasoned veteran wordsmith. Though the subject matter in the book is heavy, the respect and joy of the english written language on the pages softens the character's harsh reality. I am thrilled to be a part of this book, and a part of the journey of Rory Dawn. A special thanks to Tupelo Hassman and Bradford Earl for thinking of me for this. Cheers everyone!
