COVER ART CONTEST FINALS!
Because I want this to be about the art and only the art, I'm going to list the photos without the name of the artist this time through.
When we announce the winners, we'll match the cover to the artist's name -- and maybe we can even permit them to share links to their portfolios or website or social media, if anyone would like to do that!
Vote in the comment section for the number of the cover you like best. Just vote once, if you don't mind. :-)
There are five contests in total -- you'll find them below this post on the blog.
Ignore the watermarks and so forth on some of the covers. Just look at the overall design, whatever the particular challenge might be (is it supposed to match existing style of cover, for example?) and consider whether that cover would make you want to open the book.
You're looking for a cover that looks good large AND small.
In the meantime thank you to the following artists: Dovie Cross, Johanna Ollila, Karan Kapszukiewicz, Mabel Chiltern, Kora J, Teekah Doyle and, last but never least, Catherine Dair. You guys are all so talented and so generous to share that talent with the rest of us! Thank you so much!
VOTING ENDS NEXT WEDNESDAY (SEPTEMBER 28) AT MIDNIGHT.
