I am very pleased with how the design turned out. Jeff Brown did a fantastic job with the artwork and making the cover look exactly like I wanted. He totally worked from scratch, though I did ask him to put a post-apocalyptic look to downtown Oklahoma City in the background.
The photo shoot went really well, too. Below, you can see some behind-the-scenes pics with myself, the model (Rahela), photographer (Josh), make-up artist (Celeste) and her helper (Mauri). It was a lot of fun. We also got tons of images for future covers and promo art, one of which has already been added to my new website banner. Another is currently running around as a Facebook ad some of you might have seen. I personally designed the website banner and ad, though, so if you don’t like them that’s all on me. I’m slowly getting the hang of Photoshop!
Note- The first photos in black and white were taken by the photographer. The ones in color were taken by me on my phone.
