Patricia Lockwood is one of my favorite writers and I got to design book covers for two of her poetry collections!

This cover was for her second book, Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals, and won a silver medal from the Society of Illustrators.

For Patricia Lockwood's first book, Balloon Pop Outlaw Black, I designed this cover with a stampede of "pupeyes," a fictional creature based on Popeye the sailor. This is relevant to the contents of the book, I swear.
