The cover of "Scandalabra" came about when Derrick asked Wignall for a possible cover image that would fit with the name of the book.  This cover image was made as part of a body of personal work Wignall had been shooting in New York City, and was the first and only choice.  The other images were shot on a road trip where Wignall travelled across the country with Derrick and Amber Tamblyn, and claims to have gotten Stockholm syndrome.
