Covers and Lobotomy's

Well the month is almost over and I think I've caught up with my current covers *phew*! Just waiting on the go ahead for the last two and I'll have a couple of days breather until the next lot come in :D

Here's some of what I've been up to lately for Total-E-Bound ..











.. Liquid Silver Books ..



.. Red Sage Publishing ..



and last but not least, Lyrical Press ..



For some reason I've found myself doing a lot of Lobotomizing (head chopping) of late. It's a bit of work to make it look acceptable, and even then, those covers will ALWAYS jump out at me. They'll never look 100% right in my mind. Perhaps it's because I've spent time agonizing over subtle tonal differences or trying to get perspective and sizing right :D

I've also been experimenting with my font style and textures. I think I'm finally starting to get a feel for them. It's only taken 5 years!

Well that's about it from me. Thanks for dropping by!

I'm looking for a cover artist for a number of ebook covers for published authors, but couldn't find a "contact" link for you.
