Uploaded files are only ideas... Think simple. Somehing that could be easily viewed or recognized from a distance. I want emotional connection, a sense of movement and loss, like part of this young girl has been ripped away by the wind and as she moves forward, will she be able to remain whole. I'm attaching a sculpture I saw in Prague last year about bits of humanity being stolen by the communist experience. I want the loss and grief that follows in the aftermath of a natural disaster as well as a personal hurricane to somehow be in the cover. Not necessary to be realistic or have a recognizable face. Looking away... Flowing hair, wind blown and tangled. A young girl fighting against a strong wind. A more abstract simple design.
Lo que debe evitarse
The stock images of someone looking out from the beach. The weather is super hot so no New England or Pacific Northwest jackets or coats. No Yearning. Not a romance novel. No overt sexuality. This is a young girl trying to save the sanity of her best friend.
