It's a Catch-22 cos the cure is found in you.

.Been working on a colour cover and 4 black and white illustrations for Joseph Heller's AMAZING novel Catch-22. The book is based on an island off the coast of italy during the second world war and features a company of American bombers. The main character, Yossarian wants to be discharged but because he is 'sane' enough to realise he is losing his mind, he is ineligible however no one can be sent home for medical reasons unless they themselves ask. The book focus on this and other paradoxes, and is genuinely one of my favourite books. So much so, it even overcomes my bigotry towards American authors. Anyways still got a shitload of work to do so back to the grindstone it is...
