The Pequod’s Coffin

One of the most enjoyable recent projects to come through the illustration assignment pipeline was for my good friend Josh Flenniken. His first novel, “The Pequod’s Coffin,” has just been released by Black Rose Writing, and is an incredibly funny take on an individual’s challenges working in the belly of an inhumane and colossally bureaucratic health care company. It was an honor to be asked to create the cover art for such an intelligent and humorous story, and for someone I’ve been buddies with since 4th grade. If you are not easily offended, understand the frustrations of working for a large corporation, or just enjoy some rebellious sarcasm, you would like this book. You don’t even need to have read Moby Dick. It’s available at Black Rose Writing at a slight discount, but also Amazon and Barnes and Noble:
