DOSE :: today's cover

Got the call to do this one with a 'same day' turnaround . Such is the nature of a daily publication. I believe this is my 5th cover for DOSE. They're always a challenge , and given the time constraints, a great way to hone my 'chops' . The cover story was riffing on Ripley's Believe It Or Not. Enjoy!

I was just out doing some errands today and I saw the Dose cover art and wondered if you'd done the work. Now I know :)

Great, classic looking image. I've never heard of Dose but I'll be sure to give it a look next time I'm at the news stand.

Dominic Bugatto said...

Frank - thanks man. Unfortunately DOSE is a free daily only available here in Canada in most of the urban centers. It is available online at www.dose.ca .

did you hear that DOSE went under? I heard from my friend Sam (who is another regular contributor) that they went bankrupt or something...?

Dominic Bugatto said...

Yeah , they went 'belly up' last week. A shame really. It made for some 'light' reading , but was a pretty cool paper.

They're maintaining a web version, but we all know that , that's not the same as a printed rag in your mitts.
