CAFE RACER cov by seangordonmurphy CAFE RACER cov by seangordonmurphy

Black and white version of the cover to Café Racer! It's the story of a half Japanese WW2 survivor who gets caught up in Café Racer society in London.

For my apprenticeship, I'm putting together this anthology that each student will contribute 5 pages to. My wife and I are writing each short story, and I'll be contributing 10 pages of art. The entire thing will be 100 pages long and include pencils and other concept art that we each complete. I'll be posting more about the Kickstarter later, so stay tuned!

Let me get this straight.  You are putting together a project with your apprentices highlighting the cafe racer counter-culture?  (Throws money), take my money, take it!  in seriousness though, with your artstyle and presentation, this will be an awesome concept that I'll be happy to be involved with.
