COVER PROPOSAL

Rob (Freak Show writer/ creator) asked if i'd like to do an alternate cover for Book 2. Of course, i was very happy to be asked. As much as i liked Sean Phillips' and Stephen Mooney's covers for Book 1, i would have liked to have done a cover for a book which i'd drawn 60 story pages for. So i'm really happy i'm getting a chance to do a cover for my own book.






This is a rough sketch for my proposal. I had a previous idea, but Rob suggested i show characters from this new story arc, which i had no problem with.

Looks nice man. Id use a little less white space myself if your using that style

Dec said...

I dunno man, the whole point is to use white as much as possible. Maybe if i add another panel of Nazi monkeys? What does everyone else think?

I know what Will is saying, but if the point is to keep the white, then I would enlarge and drop the pic on the right of the monkey leaving some white between it and the top pic in the right corner. The idear being you have less of a large white space down the right side, break it up abit. But what do I know, looks good Dec.

Just having another look at the pic, you could do the back ground pics to form the nazi symbol. Just a hacks lame suggestion.Later

Hmmmmm.
I hear what you're sayin Rich, but i like how that panel is overlapped by the black rectangle. I might just add another panel and put it in the lower right hand side. Maybe bleed it off the page. Thanks for the feedback.

Hey man, your the prefesional, what do I know. Brought up some issues of Freakshow today, nice stuff can't wait to see more.

I like it just the way it is. I'm tellin ya, 9 out of ten times your first draft-your gut instinct- is the way to go. In my opinion. I find overthinking things kills off some of the initial spark. But that said, I can't stand drawing anything more than once, so.... different strokes for different folks. Nazi Chimps!

Agree with Mooney 100%. Loads of white.
