Coming up with a front cover illustration was more challenging than coming up with the back cover illustration. Not surprising. Most people would never take a look at the back cover if they hadn’t found the front cover intriguing. A front cover has to catch a buyer’s eye. It can’t be too busy or the mind will take too long to register it. It can’t be too simple or the mind won’t be interested.
I started the process by doing a series of thumbnails that I ran past Dan, the author, and Adam, our editor/publisher. This is the first one. I’ll be showing the others over the next few days.
