Top Sekret No Longer! [Jan. 5th, 2012|07:20 am]

Last week I did the cover for Alma Alexander's new short story collection Weight of Worlds (the Kindle version is $2.99 on Amazon right now). This was months in the making and I'm glad it's come together. The titular story, "Weight of Worlds", is about a young man, balanced precariously on the edge of fortune and folly who learns of a strange legacy left to him by his dying grandfather. Alma had initially asked for a cover that showed a group of seven marbles suspended in space, which we did (it's behind the cut), but after reading the story I became convinced that the thing to show was the main character at a critical time, so I did a second cover with model Joshua Taylor which I'm bang up happy with. The overlaying texture, if you're curious, is a detail from a scan of the Shroud of Turin which I used only because I think it's cool to say it's a detail from a scan of the Shroud of Turin.

There are three other versions, behind the scenes stuff and some technical "how to" photo info behind this cutCollapse )



Roswell makes friends with the model because Roswell always makes friends with the model.

I'm glad to hear that Roswell is making sure that you have plenty of cat hairs to clone out of your photos. :-) It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it.
