This is my third go-around designing a cover for Ray Robertson's fine Moody Food, a 60’s rock novel harkening the spirit of The Great Gatsby and Gram Parsons. Like Parsons, the novel's anti-hero with Christ-like overtones meets his doom off a desert hi-way. The electrical poles work well.

Incarnation #2 published by the Santa Fe Writers Project makes use of one integral image and a subtly  trippy title treatment.

Created in 2002, this is the original cover (published by Doubleday Canada) which attempts to combine elements of the burgeoning country-rock scene of the 60s with psychedelic drug-induced regalia of the day.
