A close encounter with a book cover artist

CANANDAIGUA, New York - The weekend event was irresistible - a downtown renovation project called "Streetscape" was being unveiled by the Business Improvement District. Plus one of the major contributors to the whole Main Street makeover to be honored was Amy Colburn.

Yes, that Amy Colburn, the artist who did the cover art for Fracking Justice and who also did the design for the Fracking Justice T-shirts.

Amy and I had never met face-to-face. Until Saturday we had only an electronic professional relationship that started last fall. Meeting her was a real treat.

Also, the event featured the very mural that I had seen online in the first place that prompted me to contact Amy to see if she would consider doing my book cover. The photos barely do it justice.

Downtown Canandaigua has been transformed by the improvement project, by the way.
