Polar Bear and the UFO Cover Reveal
With much gratitude to illustrator Anne Costa and graphic designer Ardi Wahyudi, Idle Time Press is pleased to share the amazing cover for Polar Bear and the UFO!
For a glimpse behind the book, check out this mini interview with Anne Costa.
What attracted you to Polar Bear and the UFO?
I loved the unexpected assembly of the two characters. That kind of friction can produce some of the most interesting dynamics as writer Cynthia Huijgens has done with Polar Bear and UFO.
What do you bring to the project?
HA! Not sure yet, lets wait and see when the illustrations are done! Seriously, I‘m flattered that Cynthia chose me for this project. I’m having so much fun putting my artistic spin on the story. Choosing the right combination of medium and paper has been my greatest challenge.
Even though you live in Los Angeles CA, Thailand is your home country. What do you miss most about Thailand?
I miss the mobility of being in a small country that you can to go from one place to another relatively cheaply and quickly, much like Europe. I definitely miss the food the most!
Is it true your dad was an extra in Frances Ford Coppola’s epic film Apocalypse Now?
He was! Check him out in the film. Its the bit when they’re going through the water with all the canoes and the men, all painted in white, watch them go by 🙂
Polar Bear and the UFO, part of the debut collection from Idle Time Press, will hit bookstores in September 2020. Watch this space for more news and thank you for your interest in Idle Time Press.
