collage day: Andrea D'Aquino

The cover of issue #9 has always been one of my favourites and I think it is because illustrator Andrea D'Aquino was such a pleasure to work with. As you can see by some of the roughs shown here, she showered me with choices!

In the end, the cover of UPPERCASE is always most successful if it is somewhat pared down and graphically simplified, so the pair of Bs was the winner.

Andrea is also featured in Work/Life 2 and the current issue of UPPERCASE. (Take a look at her spread, posted on Andrea's blog.) Andrea also did this gorgeous image for an article about quilting communities in issue 12.
