I think we’re close. Alessandro is a genius, and I don’t get tired to repeat how much I like his work. Maybe a tweak at the landscape… ? Not sure, which probably means it’s perfect as it is.
With Pax’s cover, Alessandro and I are in symbiosis. After having worked so hard for The Priest’s, creating this second cover is proving much simpler. Here’s the second attempt, and I can already say that we are on the right track. I think that the heading should match the one on The Priest, but we are close to the final cover.
Alessandro doesn’t sleep at night, which works great for me since he’s creating some serious art. In the last two or three weeks, we went back and forth talking about what I wanted to be represented on the cover for Pax in the Land of Women. I asked for a mix of ancient ruins and modern buildings, and then I gave him free reins. Fresh from his tablet here is the concept for Ginecea City. Stunning, right?
Alessandro Fiorini, the artist behind The Priest’s cover, is working on the concepts for Pax in the Land of Women, second installation in The Ginecean Chronicles. He sent me the first image a few hours ago, and, as usual, I was extremely happy with his work. What do you think? Isn’t he great?
Sandro is starting to work on Pax’s cover, but he still has some energy to play around with The Priest’s.
The Final Frontier (aka cover # 15)
Sandro fixed few little details out of place (a white spot under Mauricio’s ear, and a juxtaposition line on his neck), and I asked for the sun on the horizon. Roberto doesn’t like the sun centered, he prefers it by the side. Maybe behind the City of Men?
Different font for the title
My final requests are: Sun centered by the side, my name bigger, and the shadow under the title. And then, that’s it!
Without further ado:
The Other Banner
As a personal note, I prefer the first one with the tear (dot of the i) on the other side of the eye. But it is still awesome!
