man, i keep forgetting to post stuff here. doh!
i'd posted in september (maybe?) a bit of a process for a book cover that i worked on for a long time this summer with a ton of versions and revisions.
this is the final for the ARC (advanced reading copy) version that is in the hands of publishers and reviews and book distributors now. it would be cool if this is how it hits the shelves, with some tweaks and hard cover jacket fancy-pantsness like spot varnishes, but we'll see.
