a tale of two covers
i wasn't exactly thrilled with this cover. absolutely LOVE the image at the bottom, but the guy baffled me. anyway, apparently some people at the publishing house weren't crazy about the guy either, so the cover was changed to this:
this is the new, finished cover. I think the concept for the new cover was solid, but... I actually think the original is the better cover simply because the artwork in the second is...well.... i keep looking at it, thinking maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me and i'm simply not seeing what's supposed to be seen. i see an actual
1/4 inch gap between the head and "neck" where the overlays didn't match up.
i've learned another lesson here.
