Reread Fahrenheit 451 and decided that I needed to draw it :|
This is just plain brilliant. Love the type too.

An amazing cover for one of my favorite books.
I thought this was really cute…then I saw that it was David and it made my day!
The past few weeks, my boyfriend and I have been occupying our not-so-lazy days of summer with a full fledged attack on every library fair, garage sale, and used book store within a 40 mile radius. We’ve both been in love with reading since just about birth, and now with our not-so-willing undertaking of our first entry level jobs, we have a newly discovered ability to buy way more books than we could ever read in just a summer. Beguiled by the cheap prices and the special allure that only used books can supply, we accidentally added about 200 books to our collection in just a few weeks (oops). So, now there is the overwhelming but unbelievably exciting challenge of reading all of those books. This is where the blog comes in: an archive, map, and sketchpad for my journey through a simply ridiculous and beautiful pile of stories and ideas. I’m not sure what to expect yet, but who knows? This future jumbled collection of posts and reblogs stemming from a book-drunk college student may just bring something really interesting to the table.
First up on my list is Fahrenheit 451. I’m psyched—as in stay-up-until-4am psyched— to start this project. Wish me luck!
