Who likes space pirates! We do! We Do!

Last winter when my Art Director told me one of my bigger titles of the Winter 2014 season would be about space fighting pirates, I naturally almost peed a little. Who in their right mind wouldn't want this?! And why hasn't it been done before? (Space Cowboys* a close why did this take so long second)

It seems weird that the initial conversation about Jupiter Pirates took place so long ago. It was a no brainer picking out the right illustrator—the super fun Tom Lintern. The logo however wasn't as flawless. Getting the right amount of pointy awesome and readability took quite a lot of revamps. But I couldn't be happier with the result. 

Ta-Da! Jupiter Pirates:

Yea it's totally awesome.

There are still a few more big books on the winter list that aren't ok to put on the Internets yet. I hope those are fair game to share soon—there were a lot of cool cats this winter list. Say! Here's some more. Handlettering done by the oh so talented Joel Holland—a real stand up guy if I do say so myself.

Book 1 of a 2 part series (redesign of the hardcover)

And the sequel

Even though there's still more Winter books to come, let's enjoy our real life (and personal favorite) season, SUMMER! 

Who wants to go play and read outside? 

* Please note I never did see this film but still have every intention of being disappointed.
