Rejected Book Jacket

Here’s a book jacket I designed for Mark Leyner’s 1990 book: My Cousin, My Gastroenterologist. It’s a collection of super short, postmodern absurd fiction. And very funny! We were introduced to each other when we both lived in Hoboken, New Jersey and took a quick liking to each other’s work. I love his writing. But the publisher rejected this surreal design of mine and so I had to start all over again. They gave me some guidelines of what they really wanted and I complied. But I always wanted to do something with this gas-powered hot-rodding gastrointestinal tract. That’s publishing!
