Happy New Year!

And so the world has spun, strutted and wobbled its way around the sun yet again! We’ve come through ruff storms, predictions of the end of the world and a lot of superhero movies. This leaves us though with one eternal question, will anyone find a cover to top I Sing The Body Electric!?! It certainly doesn’t look like it! But who knows, who knows eh? I am sure the year ahead will be full of wondrous treasures!

Thanks to everyone for sending in all the covers we’ve posted over the year! And thanks to everyone who leaves a comment. Oh they do make me laugh! Ah ha ha ha ha… ha!

The top rated cover of the year:

She may of had three bottoms and lived in a severed foot. But she would never date something with a Mohawk!Click for original post

A personal favourite:

Back in my day it wasn't considered a night out unless you woke up half buried in a field surrounded by mangoes!Click for original post

CSA Chooses Lizard shield attack:

Ah John... you realise... you're not actually hitting the lizard!Click for original post

And finally, just for the double triple Ting!

Most men have horses... I have a... mmm... scaly chicken thing... yeah... WOOO!Click for original post

Amy Comments: Letters invoking Art Nouveau is an interesting choice for a book where a modern man travels back to ancient Rome.  Speaking of which, those are Roman sandals he is wearing.  I just wanted to point that out because you might think he has his feet jammed into slimy cornucopias.  Also, he is -traveling- -back- -in- -time-, people, not being served for dinner.  Note the collaged photograph of an ancient city, how it is juxtaposed against the crudely watercolored landscapes and forms in the foreground, making us question, which is the -real- world?

Many thanks to Amy!

Ashton Comments: Everything about the closer man’s outfit is amazing, from his puffy velvet shirt covered with large gold buttons and trousers striped with red and blue, to the leopard print trim on his girdle. The other man’s garbage sack outfit is no match.

OHHH GAWWWWD I'm on a terrible sci-fi cover!Click for full image

Look, I’m all for drawing yourself on the cover – but it comes at a price. A translucent alien head staring at the reader, some lightning on the hills and (my forte) flying avocados! And I really mean avocados with pink wings. With that all there, you can just draw how you feel.

Well magic is purple. Fact! So we are sorted for that but we need a way of getting magic’s amazing power across to people. I know, electricity… and some guy in obvious pain as he weaves his supernatural element. We all know that when you meddle with the supernatural all you get is that burning sensation of being electrocuted.

Thanks to CSA!
