James Ferguson made an enormous contribution to the digital world by inventing LCD technology. His daughter Terri wrote a book about his life. I was thrilled to contribute the cover illustration - which incorporates the colors of natural liquid crystals.
This project came about after Teri came across a portrait I created of her father in 2011, for the tech company, Softmart. The drawing (below) appeared in a calendar celebrating great technological innovators. In adapting this piece to a book-cover, I found Teri and designer Susan Shankin to be a pleasure to collaborate with.
