Here's round two. These rough comps are both in the running for the final cover.
As mentioned previously, I was asked to approach this cover in a more conventional manner.

The luggage tag collage was thrown together pretty quickly and I only sent it at the last minute not really thinking it would make the cut. Should it go forward, I'd like to take the small hammer to it and tap things here and there a bit.

The airplane cover was based on an image the art director suggested I play with.

like the art directed one. I get it. It feels good and has some emotion to it that I think is brought out with the airplane shadow...

hey, whose art directing you on this cover?

Mary Opper. She just this morning informed me that the author and everyone else loves the collage cover so, it's sold.

congrats. It's a nice and daring cover. Very intriguing to look at.

Did you take that small hammer and tap things here and there a bit? I'd like to see that tap action...:)
