I’ve teased this, and here’s a slightly more official teaser with a link. 😉
I’ve teamed up with fellow indie author Karl Drinkwater to make premade covers for other indie authors and publishers. Organic Apocalypse is still in the fledgling stage as we feverishly create and upload covers. Actually, there’s nothing feverish about it. It’s so much fun! And then the rendering… well, that’s coverspeak for “put the kettle on, this is going to take some time.”
The design process is fun. It’s all in the head. Getting it out of my head and onto the screen is interesting. Sometimes frustrating. However, with audiobooks or Led Zeppelin in the background, it just works.
The text and fonts can be tweaked, but the covers are very much WYSIWYG. (Took me ages to figure out that one: what you see is what you get.)
So yeah, this side hustle is simply awful. Zero fun. 🙂
It will take time to build up a portfolio, but there are plenty more covers on the way.
