In Other News, on Friday, I sent Rowein the design ideas for the new Free Love cover. There are a couple of commissions ahead of me in line, but the new cover is gestating now... I seriously still cannot believe I was able to get in the line AT ALL... she's such a goddess! If you're curious about the process, I send her the images I searched up as inspiration while I was writing, all labeled... "A's hair cut"... "G's body"... "G's hair color"... "A's face..." and then I make a VERY rough sketch of the layout I have in mind. The sketch is one of those opportunities to learn through suffering-- imagine sending an Art Goddess your pitiful sketch. If it was translated into words, it would read like "hE us a bOy. HE us BiG. THEr uS A nutHer boy, tO. He Is noT bIg. He HAs LuNg rED hAre. ThE BIg bOy lIKeS tHe UthEr bOy! HE hoLDs a DoOr." [Read that in the voice of Dug from Up!] My ego is thoroughly checked right now, I promise you.
