Interview with Cultura Impopular

I was recently interviewed by Óscar Palmer about the Long Story Shorts series for Affirm Press. Óscar runs a small publishing house in Spain, Es Pop Ediciones and also maintains the blog Cultura Impopular , which discusses design, Illustration, comics and the like.

The interview is published in English and Spanish (scroll down for the english version) and really gets into the process and journey of creating the cover designs for each book, as well as the overall aesthetic. Hit the title above to link to the blog.

If you scroll further down, you'll get to a fabulous interview with crime writer Lawrence Block, titled Eight Million Ways To Write. Great stuff, taking you from write for your life pulp style early work to New York Times bestsellers.

It's a terrific blog, knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the material, so I'll be following it keenly.

Whoops: heres the link to the actual interview:


  1. I was just introduced to your work courtesy of the blog, Caustic Cover Critic (which linked to this same interview). That blog has pointed me in so many right directions I should send James finder's fees. Your work is gorgeous. I really love everything about it. And your book jacket designs are elegant and compelling. Great stuff! Cheers!

  2. Hi Bob, high praise indeed coming from you and really very much appreciated. You've created such a wealth of great work i'm positively intimidated! Will be checking out the caustic critic.

  3. Was so good , Why don't publish the interview ?

  4. Sorry, just realised the link was to the main Cultura Impopular site, not the interview, just added the interview link above, hope you find t of interest.
