Cover to The Nightly News #2

The Nightly News #2, originally uploaded by Pronea.

The cover to the Nightly News #2. Different than the cover listed in the Sept. PREVIEWS.

I have to say, I love the graphical design of issue #1. You've really inspired me to get off my ass and at least make a pretense of working on my own mag.

Just out of curiosity (since the second issue cover appears to be blue, which admittedly appears briefly during flashback sequences in issue#1), are you varying the color palette at all from issue-to-issue or is ochre part of the Nightly News brand?

I'm intentionally using a very limited palette. It’s a design constraint I placed on myself for two reasons: 1. It’s symbolic – one color set is “now,” the other is “other time” - and 2. I kind of suck at color (not in a, “why did you use green and hot pink” kind of way, but in a, “I can’t ever make up my mind so I screw around for three days on one panel” kind of way.

Hope that answers your question.

Glad you liked the book.
