Brad Warner contacted me and asked if I was able to use one of my poster illustrations for the cover of his 2014 book.
Brad's biggest influences have been his love for the band 'KISS' and his practice of Zen. The painted figure featured here is known as a "Daruma Doll" and is wildly popular among the Japanese, it's originally painted to resemble the founder of Soto Zen in Japan, Bodhidharma. Naturally combining these elements made perfect sense for a cover of his latest book.
