Book cover initial concept ideas for Deconstructing Brad Pitt
In 2011 I was asked by authors Chris Schaberg and Mark Yakich to design a book called Checking In Checking Out. The book was a two-sided “cat dog” design that chronicled one authors fear of flying and the other authors experience working at an airport.

Design by Nancy Bernardo
Writing by Allison Schuette
Through text and image, Allison Schuette and Nancy Bernardo explored the ways in which we as individuals and as a society approach the body in order to organize experience. They take anatomy as a metaphor for this process and gender as its subject. By juxtaposing personal narrative with cultural analysis, they first argue that science has played a supporting role in the way patriarchy objectifies women before it turns and problematizes this very position. In the end, Schuette and Bernardo suggest neither patriarchy nor the practice of anatomy is a totalizing system. There are always fissures through which individuals can approach the body.
