Coming in December...

Here is my cover for the latest edition of GREAT EXPECTATIONS by Charles Dickens, published by Penguin as part of their deluxe Graphic Classics series, which encourages the illustrator/cartoonist to use comic book devices like panels & word balloons over a straightforward cover illustration. It was a lot of fun (especially since it's a favorite book of mine), not to mention an honor to be included with such a great group of fellow cartoonists.

Go to designer Paul Buckley's flickr page (which is where I grabbed the above scan) to see all of the book covers in the series:


  1. Love this series! Ware wow, Ott!! Jason, yours definitely deserves a place there!

  2. Excellent preview. I look forward to seeing the finished product in December. Thanks for the sneak peak!
