@mikegraham6 (and anyone else who is interested)
- I designed the logo (pretty classic look to it),
- designed the layout of out the front page (again, it is a pretty basic, standard layout),
- the inside front cover (as well as having some fun with Mike's art for that by blowing up a tiny detail of an orgasmic woman for the background on that page),
- the back cover (which uses a version of one of the teaser images we created for the marketing campaign back in November 2010),
- 6 full pages of extra text by Casey and sketchbook materials from Huddleston,
- a logo for that section (which is called "For Which It Stands")
- and finally, the title page, double-page spread montage and coloring on the "Coming Soon" section.
It is a wonderful job that I'm enjoying a lot, made that much easier by Joe Casey and Mike Huddleston's incredible content.
