This thing sort of just happened, I’ve been working on my H.G. Wells book covers all day today, and am finally nearly finished. I’m now on the last of the three titles, The History of Mr. Polly, the imagery for which, is a stylized, Saul Bass-style hand holding a match. As I was digitally tracing the original drawings I noticed how cool the hands look in black, and thought it would be a waste not to have a little mess around. I happened to be listening to Sham 69‘s punk anthem ‘If the Kids are United’ at the time, and this is what happened. Kinda cool I thought.
