book cover work...

...as much as i love doing my lettering style so to speak, i have fallen out with it for afew hours as i have seriously hurt my neck and back by continous hours of doing scraperboard work. i completed the lettering this morning but have been resting since then. my hand now resemebles a claw and i ache all over! i have spent over a day doing the lettering for two book covers and it has taken longer than i had originally thought it would-probably because as usual i phaffed around-more phaffing than normal though! therefore the screen print has been postponed to next week as there is no point in rushing my images just to get it done for monday. i have still got the weekend and as planned will work on collage work and maybe attempt some digital exploring using the intended screenprint layers. the black bit is where the fish and other things will go when i get round to moving my aching joints again!

hello I tried to reply but I just replied to myself, so yes, if you can add me that would be nice, as long as your fingers are up for it after all this scraping, dedication pays off in the end!! Lovely!! X ali

That lettering is looking gorgeous, Ladysnail. 'Hope you can find a way of doing it without incurring all the aches and pains.

Wow! Love that lettering. The cover looks pretty amazing just with that black void at the top. Maybe you could do something similar with another title - something about astronomy for example - and just keep it like that? A few tiny flecks of white on it could suggest stars.

Sorry, that's just me rambling on!
