After many months of wanting to try my hand at creating a Blurb book, the opportunity finally arose this month when I was invited to participate in a special collaboration with them. I couldn't be more thrilled with the results. and wanted to share a few snaps of my book.
I decided to go with a simple layout in the 8.5" x 11" book size so I could easily throw it in my bag for meetings. I went with a full image printed cover of my eye illustration, both front and back, which I think is my favorite part. I used black lead and end pages and the interior pages were a very simple 76 page layout mostly consisting of full page images, both a mix of client and personal work from 2009 - 2015. The whole thing was done with the Blurb InDesign plugin which couldn't be easier. I gotta say, this is a pretty excellent tool for artists and now that I'm hooked, I'm looking forward to making a new one for sale next year if you have any interest in some ZSO art on your coffee table.
Thanks a million for the collab, Blurb.
