I am looking for a funny, playful cover design that shows the mayhem of raising boys.
I have no preference to how the title, subtitle and my name are laid out on the cover- get creative!
I have some personal photos of my boys that I would love to incorporate. The 1st 4 pictures I uploaded are mine, and my 2 favorites (if you can use one of them, I would be THRILLED) are the one with the stools on their heads, and the one where they are squirting the hose down their pants. You could also play around with the black and white one of my husband and boys peeing around the the toilet. I know the resolution may not be great, but I would love to see what magic you can work with them. :)
I want the cover to make people laugh FOR SURE
I also uploaded a few other book covers of books about boys that I like, although I wish there were more funny examples.
The book will most likely be 5x8 paperback and hardcover. Potential hardcover will be 5x8 case laminate.
I want you to use lots of creative freedom! Ultimately, I want the book to have a fun, lighthearted, vibe showcasing how crazy young boys can be.
If stock photos are used, it would be best to use free or inexpensive ones, as I don't want to pay high royalties for the books that are sold. Same with fonts (I would like the font playful, but ideally, not one I have to pay for).
The pictures (besides the 1st 4 that are mine) are just examples of the types of pictures I like, and aren't specifically meant to be used.
I am pretty open to see what you can come up with, as I have a general idea of what I am looking for, but open to your professional ideas!
The back cover will also have text. Back cover copy will be provided.
