Catching eyes while opening minds

Collar book cover design by Tom Morhous and Remo+Oob, Ltd.

Tom is a navvie, a guide that helps workers find jobs on the factory ships that now dot the American coastline. He swims his clients through six miles of corrupt Labor patrol boats, overzealous patriots, and rough waters off the Rockaways in New York City. Last week, after five years of being in business, he finally ran into some trouble. Tonight is the night he can get out of it...

My friend and creative partner Leo Vladimirsky needed a cover for his first published effort, ‘Collar.’ I opted for something that wouldn’t just stand out on Amazon, but also reflected the story’s mood. If you’re a fan of grim near-future fiction like Gary Shteyngart’s ‘Super Sad True Love Story,’ you’ll love ‘Collar.’
