I never pictured myself a graphic designer. But in putting out Two Pumps for the Body Man, I had the chance to try my hand. Here are a few samples I drew up before arriving at the finished product.
Classic cover sheet for SDDTS material. Wait, SDDTS material?

Creepy in a way I didn’t intend.
An early favorite. The green’s supposed to evoke the Saudi flag. But I wanted the “desirable object” laying atop the Arabic script–or below it, in place of the sword. It struck me such a design might offend. Rather than present a weakened version of the artistic vision, I dropped it altogether.
This. I wanted a blue cover all along.
