"The Don't Kill Anyone, I Love You cover illustration was for a very original and interesting story set in wintery Slovenia that deals with, among other things, love, religion, bureaucracy, and betrayal. There is much theater here, both literal and non-literal...so I decided on a stage setting with touches of surrealism...like a real snowy landscape with some of my favorite imagery, like bare trees and curtains. The focus is the main character of the book whose sexual ambiguity is a central theme throughout the story. I wanted to portray him as a man, with a more subtle suggestion of his complexity." 17 x 13 1/2.
