I recently illustrated the cover of Patricia Lockwood’s new poetry collection, Balloon Pop Outlaw Black.
Patricia’s best known for her “sext tweets,” which on their own deserve a genius grant and/or Nobel prize, but she’s also an extraordinary long-form poet.

I preordered this book on Amazon before I even knew Lisa did the cover, but I was also in knee-jerk I’LL BUY IT mode just at the idea of a Patricia Lockwood book I could own and read whenever I wanted instead of waiting around for her to login to Twitter like a schmuck.
