I was lucky enough to be one of 10 invited artists to create 15 original covers for the newest edition of Çedilla. Each person who purchases a copy of Ç viii (v. 8.0) will have the ability to choose a book with an artist-designed cover.

Ç, or Cedilla (pronounced Sa-dee-ya), is an annual literary journal now in its 8th year. The covers of the eighth edition of the Cedilla journal features original artwork by 10 artists and will be on display. The pages are filled with stories, poems, and other writings by several authors who will be reading from the journal.
