Tinpot Hobo Issue 1 Reprint cover reject

By Jackademus
247 Favourites
Tinpot Hobo Issue 1 is at the printers as I type this, and for the new printing, I wanted to do a new cover. Thinking a bar scene would be really cool, I got this done, uploaded the whole thing and waited for the proof to arrive.

And when it did arrive, I opened it up and immediately knew the cover was wrong. I'm actually really happy with it as an illustration of some of my aliens and characters, but it's just not right for a cover.

So yesterday I created an entirely new cover which is now the one that's going to print. Phew!

This'll probably be released as a print at some point, and it'll always have the honour of *almost* being the Issue 1 reprint cover!

Hope yaa like it, folks!

Well I dunno. I think it would look pretty sharp on a good sized hardcover book!

But I would totally have this up on my wall in a frame. Sporting your signature or something! ;D

Congratulations on the reprinting!
