A Troll Makeover

Been working on the cover for next year’s charity Halloween release. It’s a book of short stories by various authors, all with one shared element: a troll or trolls. Any kind of troll is fair game. An old etching of mine was the catalyst for the anthology. The terrifyingly pink-complexioned troll has benefitted from the makeover, I think.

Here’s the before picture of the troll etching:

And the after, so far. (Still needs a bit of tidying):

  1. I really like the way you have ordered the author list to match the shape of the text and troll! 🙂

  2. (Right, no pressure.) I was going to save this for later, but your name should also be on the cover as Designer and Compiler, or maybe Designer and Editor.

    1. Al: thank you very much. We aim to squeeze!

      Carol: No room! (And I just squeezed in two more names.)
      Don’t worry, I’ll take the credit (and the blame) elsewhere.
