Thug Notes: The Odyssey
For our new series, “The Novel Idea,” we are asking artists to re-create the covers of their favorite books. Last time, Robert Meinhardt chose Hell’s Angels, and this time Brian Scott Campbell selected A Figure In Hiding by Franklin W. Dixon. “I remember checking out Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew from the library when I was a kid, and loved the covers for The Tower Treasure, and The Secret Of Skull Mountain,” Brian explains. “I was considering several possible books for the project, including many of the Choose Your Own Adventure novels, but the covers were almost too good to re-interpret. I settled on working with the Hardy Boys, A Figure In Hiding. I love the matter-of-fact quality of the title for this book. I usually start with a title for my work, or a list of words, but it’s never poetic, it’s more of a directive. I chose this book because I thought the figure looked like a peeping Tom, which is really fucking weird considering he looks like a boy scout, and is rendered in a pulp magazine style. Maybe my work always deals with this idea of a hidden figure, but in a slightly less literal way.”
