My book needs a cover. There is a contest involved.

But, Knikkki, instead of re-doing a musical number that some other singer did before, why not get someone to do a completely original song for the book?

Oh... You mean THAT kind of cover...

Never mind. Rolling Eyes

Thanks, V.

I was just goofing around while working on my laptop tonight. I don't hardly think it well enough to compete in the contest, but wanted to share with y'all

I think it looks cool! I think the photos would have to be your original work though, otherwise, copyright issues. I really love the Datsun and I want one on my cover. Not sure what the editor is going to say about that.

We'll see!

Thanks for the props. Actually, all the images involved in the making of this piece are public domain material (hate to infringe on copyrights). But as I said, I was just goofing off, trying to get stuff accomplished between hard lockups of my dying laptop and figured I would have fun. Smile
