Notes from a Sickbed, Graphic Universe, 2022
I’ve been a fan of cartoonist Tessa Brunton for many years, so it was a pleasure to work as the designer on her first full-length graphic novel.
Given the book’s title and subject, this project provided the exciting opportunity to incorporate the visuals of a scrapbook or journal. Some of the special touches Tessa created include hand-lettered titles for each story, faux stickers and notes for the back cover, and sketchbook-style vignettes to compliment the longer pieces. Tessa’s talent and creativity made every step of the process a delight; the finished book is an absolute gem.
