Artist Statement

"I love this book, and want to help people see it in a less stuffy light. A friend of mine said that reading a book called \"The Importance of Being Earnest\" sounds like listening a lecture from his grandma. What he, and other people, don\'t realizes, is that The Importance of Being Earnest is a very silly book, and the title is actually quite clever in the context of the story. I wanted to give this cover a more contemporary look, as well as reference the meaning behind the title. " - Coral Nafziger
