ABOUT THE COVER ARTIST

Show Pigeon is the professional moniker of tattooer and painter Evie Yapelli, a Chicago-bred transplant to southern California. Two of her early loves were vintage illustration and pop culture, with sailor tattoos following not long after. You can see the influence of each in her stylized designs, limited palette, and retro subject matter. Paintings by Show Pigeon have been exhibited nationally and have been published worldwide in children’s books, art compilations, fashion, and designer toys. Her tattoos are worn by collectors throughout the world.
