The Problem of Stock Art
Why yes, I know I’ve been notable for my absence. Three things converged on this upcoming weekend because of my splendid planning skills. The good news is that by this time next week, all three will be done unless I’ve screwed up completely. One of them is the long-delayed-but-now-finally-almost-here collection of short stories, Crazy People. I’ll post more about them next week when they’re actually available, but for the moment bask in the glory of the cover . . . and then check out the poster that is evidently all over Oregon:
Isn’t that a great graphic? Somebody in Oregon thought so, too:
Nobody in Crazy People has an STD (that I know of; I really don’t trust Ronnie), but of course nobody in Oregon will believe that now.
Stock Art, the bad boyfriend of the graphics world: It’s cheap and untrustworthy. And yet, still attractive.
