Chipotle Publishing, LLC
In the summer of 2011, Chipotle Publishing decided to begin producing a series of coloring books targeted at the children of the customers who typically bought their defense magazines and gun-related books. Machine Gun Inventors, the first in this series, featured original line art by Robert Novzen depicting inventors of some of the world’s most notable weapon systems alongside the weapons themselves. Each inventor+weapon drawing was accompanied by a brief blurb about the inventor himself and the development of the weapon in question.
Robert Novzen provided the line art for the cover (depicting Hiram Maxim), but the digital colorization and cover design are my own. I was also the layout artist for the book itself.
Machine Gun Inventors is currently available on Amazon.com.
