It’s Week 9 of the Photo Rehab Cover Makeover run by Desley Jane of Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist and Lucile of Lucile de Goday. Actually, it might not be Week 9 — I seem to have got mixed up as I titled Green Mile #7; that’s what comes of dealing with far too many emails and an explosion of other people’s lovely blog posts!
I do know, however, that this week’s challenge, as you can see above, was to do a cover for George Orwell’s classic, 1984.
I chose to use I Can See What You’re Doing as the background to give the impression of a barricade. I added the same photo from Unsplash that I used in Cabinet of Curiosities (the whirly window), and a medical drawing of an eyeball from The Graphics Fairy.
The font I’ve used (Bodoni) is not what I would have wished. I lost so many fonts last year when the computer died at the same time as the back-up (of course) and remembering the names and finding them again is proving almost impossible. The one I had in mind was what you might call ‘dirty’ and eaten into. Ah well!
