As soon as the author contacted me to come up with a cover based around the title, I immediately thought of a 1950s ad. I already had a 50s-ish stock photo in my stock library, so I went about to do everything in my mind that evoked that time era from the cool starburst effect to the fonts. For good measure, I came up with 3 more concepts for the author to look at that were more contemporary and of varying degrees of how mom-ish they were and I”m happy to say that the author was most pleased with this cover.
Let it be known this is one of my favorite covers I’ve created. I really want to do more vintage/retro work. <3 2014.
