#photorehabcovermakeover Week 10

It’s already Week 10 of the Photo Rehab Cover Makeover run by Desley Jane of Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist and Lucile of Lucile de Goday.

I must state that I actively loathe the work of J.R.R. Tolkien so you’ll find no fawning here! No matter how many people exhort me to, I will never again pick up copies of The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings and try to read them. Life’s too short.

Walt WhitmanI was so tired of dark colours that my original intention was to create something simple in black and white with the title, author, one of the protagonists, and a ring. I discovered a site that compared the characters to real people. Gandalf, as played by Ian McKellen, was likened to Walt Whitman, which tickled my fancy,  and I took it from there.

Once I’d dismissed the idea of black and white, I searched my designs and decided that the background textures from Turning Windmill might work rather well. I hope you agree.

Take care and keep laughing!
