Redbubble art used as book cover

Redbubble art used as book cover

UK-based painter Mike Jory has had one of his images published as a book cover thanks to promoting his art on the website RedBubble. Based in Australia, Redbubble provides artists from all over the world with a way to exhibit their work on the internet and thereby expand their audience. Artists can also sell their designs on a range of products including high-quality fine art prints.
A few months ago, USA-based publishing company Dufour Editions were seeking a cover image for their soon-to-be published book 'Bluebeard's Goat and Other Stories' by H.L. Mencken  and came across Mike's painting 'Strike a Pose' on the Redbubble website. Painted using acrylics the image depicts a white goat looking back over its shoulder at the viewer and was inspired by some goats in Somerset in England.
Dufour Editions contacted Mike to obtain permission to use the image and the book, which is available through Barnes and Noble in the USA and on Amazon, has now been published complete with white goat!
