DIY Book Cover

There is nothing funnier on the internet than bad independent book covers. Here's an example:
Really? NYT Best-selling author?
 The prevailing advice for anyone going the self-publishing route is to get a professional to do it for you. I don't necessarily plan on doing that and I'm a long way away from even being at that point. However, I thought I'd try my hand at making a cover, just for fun. This is the result.

It's not great,there are definitely flaws, but it's also not terrible, hopefully not worthy of being in one of those fail galleries. I think it's ok for a couple hours of messing around on canva.com, an excellent web program for quick and easy graphic design.

FYI, the painting used is public domain, which I found on wikimedia commons.

Anyway, that's all I've got to say about that. It's good to be blogging again, though.
