Proofing the cover

Oooh! Look it's the cover proof for the new book!
Oooh! Look it’s the cover proof for the new book!
Exciting! Andrews McMeel just sent me the proof of the cover for the new Laser Moose and Rabbit Boy book! This time, the cover’s getting a glossy layer AND a super-fancy shiny foil layer. This proof shows what the cover color will look like and where the gloss and foil will show up. I can’t wait to see the final version when it comes out in October!

Now I just need to look through this proof carefully and make sure that I haven’t made any mistakes. Here are some pictures of the individual layers so you can see how it’s all put together…

This is the layer for the foil. The blue parts will be super-shiny disco balls in the final version!

And here's the next layer. The red bits will be a shiny gloss layer (like we had on the first book).

And finally here's the color for the cover. (The black areas here will be filled with foil disco balls!)

      Thanks Trina! Heheh well I’ve actually already started work on book 3 – just a rough sketch of the plot at this point, but I’m excited about it – it’s going to be a fun story to tell and a challenging one to draw! :)
