Cover and interior artwork for the Nahollo Chronicles - a trilogy written by Stephen Gresham. This is probably my favorite project for quite some time, as it marks the first true collaboration between my dad and I. The Nahollo Chronicles are a trilogy set in the swamps of east Alabama. Each book is a journal entry by Jessica Lovelia DeGresse, a woman who has left society and made her home in a cabin by the Nahollo swamp. The books crystalize the boundaries between good and evil, human and monster, love and hate -- natural and supernatural. The artwork was developed to show the duality as a concrete and definable thing. The balance is the journey. I wanted to draw heavily from older styles, using a yellow strike for the duality symbol - and old press type, as well as, engravings to be timeless and somewhat esoteric in form. The images are meant to complement the story and push the reader into deeper translations of what is actually occurring.
