The Bounce Covers - Step-by-step & BIG

A couple of months ago I posted some small images of the cover design process for "The Bounce". After a few requests for an interface that would more easily allow detailed viewing, I've posted a gallery of each cover at each stage. (Click on the images to see full-size versions.)

In the first steps, you can clearly see the concept Photoshop mockups I send to the brilliant David Messina, who then uses them to inspire his gorgeous cover art (shown in the second step). In the third step are the completed covers, where you can see that I sometimes alter a tiny aspect of the color, or zoom in on the art, as well as adding the overlay of logo, ink splatter, and all of the functional elements. This is a process I do with David's approval (he is a fantastic collaborator) before I send the covers to print.
