I'm due to get my feedback on the roughs for Baby Goes Baaaa! some time today. While I've been waiting for the final go-ahead, I've been taking another look at the cover design I began thinking about last week.
Sarah sent me some title text we could possible use, to help me get a feel for what space I had to play with, and I worked up the little sketch I showed you last time into this:
I usually have a policy of never presenting more than one alternative rough. This dates back to my days in editorial illustration, when I discovered that, if ever I presented two alternatives, the art director would say something like, "Mmm, I like this from this one, but that from the other... Could we please combine them?" And I would end up having to draw a third.
I'll let you know if it happens again!
