My Art Illustrates a Magazine Cover


Illustrating the Cover Story

My art graces the cover of the current issue of Divinity, the alumni magazine for Duke University's Divinity School. Yes, I'm bragging, especially because it wasn't because of anything I did except for blogging about making art using my collection of road maps. 

The magazine's editor contacted me a few months ago asking if I would allow her to use four of my map collages to illustrate the leading article, "Maintaining Good Roads", in the Spring 2014 Alumni magazine. She had seen my work online. How cool is that!

If you're interested in seeing the article with other photos of my artwork or to download the article in PDF go here.

  1. You have to brag Jo, otherwise we wouldn't know your good news. I love to hear about my fellow bloggers successes. Congratulations! It's a beautiful cover and I would definitely be drawn to the publication if I happened to see it somewhere. The thumbnail pic in my sidebar had me trotting over for a closer look.

    1. You're right about that, Robyn. If we didn't speak up about our successes then most people wouldn't know. I need to remember that when I feel uncomfortable about "show and tell".

    1. I was so pleased, Mary. It proves to me that a Christian doesn't necessarily have to be limited to making art with religious content to be a Christian artist. I don't draw angels since I have no idea what they look like!
