SHOCK EXCHANGE Cover Art Iconic? PDF Print E-mail

Image The cover art for the Shock Exchange's much-anticipated new book, SHOCK EXCHANGE ... How Inner-City Kids Predicted The Great Recession And The Pain Ahead is up.  Yes, the book cover features the iconic "Shock Boy" posing with a basketball and briefcase which has come to define the Shock Exchange.  We grabbed a random boy from the neighborhood and did the shoot in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn in 2006.  It took the kid about an hour before he could finally hold the briefcase and spin the ball at the same ____ time.  We then worked with a graphic design student from nearby Pratt Institute to craft the logo.  I envisioned Shock Boy as one day rivaling Nike's jumpman logo; however, he has surpassed our expectations. 

Shock Boy, with the Brooklyn streets as a backdrop, in a grainy, black and white setting captures the mood of the book and the "pain ahead."  It has a timeless appeal, similar to old family portraits or the days when John Pierpont Morgan frequented Brooklyn and was lord over all of Street.  Or maybe it is reminiscent of that old black and white family portrait of Grandma and Grandpa that hangs in the living room, keeping a watchful eye over the current goings on.  Will African Americans and/or followers of Wall Street talk about the "pain ahead" a century from now?  Actually, that is the book we tried to write ... timeless ... thought-provoking ... unapologetic and that's the look we were going for with the book cover.  The book is due out in mid-September and will be available on at Amazon (kindle), Barnes & Noble (Nook), Apple (iPad, iPhone), Sony, and Kobo, amongst others.
