Tuesday, Liz Czukas posted a for-fun cover of The Sorbet Guy, mocked up for her by the super-talented Wilette Youkey.
That cover makes me all kinds of happy. Maybe because I already love the story. Maybe because I love Willette's graphical elements (fonts, texture and fleurons rule!). Whatever it was, I wanted one for myself.
I'm no Photoshop pro, but I did take a class back in the stone ages. Most thirteen-year-olds out-perform me, so don't look too closely at my work with the selection tool. Or, if you do, pretend along with me that my characters are plagued by bone and shoe-nibbling parasites.
I'm also not sure if it is genre-appropriate. I have a sinking suspicion it might be too whimsical. But I like it.
Yay pretend cover! You are imaginary, and about a book whose epic editing needs daunt me, but you make me happy.
