Cover Art

Pete Rosos says,

For this week’s Photo Challenge, stimulate your creative process and imagine which of your images you would like to see gracing the cover of a book, an album, or a magazine. Would the image inspire us to take a peek through the pages, listen to the music, or buy a ticket to the show? Would it strike a chord with viewers, making them reflect on or revisit memories of places, people, and experiences?

This calls for weird doesn’t it? or perhaps its just an excuse for me to be silly. So this is the cover of a book that I would never write!

  1. You’ve really been creative. I don’t think I’ll read this one late at night home alone – dismemberment of body (or personhood: i can see the possibility of psychic disintegration in the image) is not for such a time.

    How did you create the image? It looks as if it might be fun to play round with the technique.

  2. Now, you can’t get away with that, Gilly. When you put a picture like that up, you should HAVE to write the story that goes with it. Don’t leave us out here wondering what it means. Put some words to it please — only not too terribly dark so we won’t have nightmares.

  3. Wow! That is quite a creation Gilly! How did you do it? I have to say I would probably pick the book up to see what it was about but may not read it if it is blood & gore! Fabulous!

  4. dear Gilly = Lucid Gypsy –
    I had problems to translate Lucid:

    translations for “lucid”
    1 – klar = clear, plain, transparent, understood, crisp, lucid
    2 – durchsichtig = transparent, clear, limpid, lucid, see-through
    3 – luzid = lucid, translucent
    4 – hell = bright, light, pale, clear, fair, lucid
    5 – einleuchtend = plausible, reasonable, lucid, valid, perspicuous, satisfactory
    6 – anschaulich = graphic, clear, vivid, descriptive, concrete, lucid
    7 – transparent = transparent, clear, diaphanous, lucid
    8 – präzise = precise, exact, concise
    9 – scharfsinnig = perceptive, percipient, astute, penetrating, penetrative, lucid
    which meaning 1-9 is YOUR message?

I would love to hear from you . . .
