There's a new book out, Penguin 75, a collection of their best covers. They've included the one I did for Jack Kerouac's Dharma Bums. For some reason I'm credited as Jason Lambiek. I have no idea how they came up with this as my last name. Its a mystery to Paul Buckley, the editor, as well. One of the dangers of using a one name pseudonym, I suppose. Anyway, it's a very nice book, with a foreword by Chris Ware.
They probably googled this site: http://lambiek.net/artists/j/jason.htmReplyDelete
& confused the name with the url... Quite odd, really.
The cover art and the mini-comic is wonderful though!
Thanks! Yes, that might be an explanation.ReplyDelete
This version of the book is my favourite, it's just beautiful as... a 'book'ReplyDelete
Stangely on my copy the cover art credit is simply 'Jason'
Luckily Lambiek is one of the finest comic stores on the continent (this one at least), named after a character of Willy Vandersteen.ReplyDelete
ps Chris Ware made a tiny comic for this store
