The Vintage Ambulance and Miss Ducktail

Miss Ducktail is crazy about anything vintage. She sports a Grace Kelly hairstyle and wears vintage negligees to bed. She also does the artwork for my books. I recently asked her to redesign the cover art for Man in a Zen Ambulance; go back and refine an earlier version. Basically, I needed to better showcase the book’s mean-streets cool, hints of Zen and early rock and roll music. So, a gritty grainy image with low tones. Rays shooting out like the Japanese Setting Sun flag from left to right. Shadowy guitar. An ambulance packing plenty of chrome in the foreground.

And that building it’s parked outside of?
Hell, maybe that’s a recording studio just like good old Sun Records!
