  • Dust jacket design for the novel Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes.  This heart tugging novel revolves around Charlie Gordon, a mentally handicapped adult, Algernon, a scientifically altered mouse who becomes Charlie's best friend, and the scientific quest to increase a person's intelligence level.  I wanted to portray Algernon in a non photographic manor which would connect with the psychological aspect of the novel and thus better represent the author's concept.  Imagery was created using black ink to give the suggestion of a Rorschach test to further connect with this idea.
