If you think the title page of the latest John Grisham novel looks like Old Dominion University's Foreman Field of old, so does Hampton Roads artist and ODU alumnus Louis Jones.

The contributor of art for a previous Grisham novel ("A Painted House" {2001}, Jones drew on his memories of attending high school football games at the stadium when he was a student at Norfolk's Granby High School in the late '60s and early '70s for the title page of "Bleachers," which went on sale Sept. 9. The image evokes the novel's subject, behind-the-scenes intrigue in a football-obsessed small town.

Jones no doubt also recalls Foreman Field from his days as an art student at Old Dominion, where he earned his bachelor's degree in 1974.
