Carolyn Swiszcz & Dylan Hicks


Twin Cities-based Highpoint artist Carolyn Swiszcz was invited by author Dylan Hicks to make the cover for his second novel, Amateurs, which was published by Coffee House Press in May 2016. Carolyn used her signature techniques of stencil, monotype, and rubber stamp to illustrate the book’s cast of characters.

Dylan Hicks is a singer-songwriter and novelist and lives in Minneapolis.  To read more about the book and Carolyn's process for creating the cover, please click here.
