Indie Cover Spotlight: Spudd 64 #1

I’m going to end this week’s look at mini-comics with one of my favorites, Spudd 64 by my friend and fellow PANEL Collective member, Matt Kish.

The thing about Matt’s books is that he only prints them in very small batches, probably only 50 or 60, and puts a lot of effort into making them true art objects. This cover, for example, features a spray painted stencil, as well as an original piece of art in the center (with a different one for each cover).

I can’t possibly begin to describe what Spudd 64 is about and do it justice, so I’ll just say that it’s a metaphysical cosmic journey of rebirth and evolution, and leave it at that. Check out Matt’s website and blog (linked above) and you’ll be treated to some of the most detailed, organic, and unique artwork you’ve ever seen.

Oh, and check out his absolutely amazing art book, Moby-Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page.
