Greetings Ruslan,

 

You did a better job on the other than I would have - please place this on the books.

 

The books and dust jacket can utilize the text as follows wherever you believe it looks best.:

 

The Wizard Was Odd Trilogy and Celebrating 120 years - You did a great job with that on the blue books.

 

Title

Author

Book One?

Book Two?

Gold Commemorative Edition ( I think this should be prominent)

 

As far as Art goes, the dust jacket will be four color and can therefore utilize my logo in full color with the surrounding gold bead skulls. I was thinking that a large logo could be center image for the front cover. If you have an idea,  I am open to hearing it and if we use it, the Logo could be used on the back cover along with the above text.

 

On the books themselves, since it is gold foil, I am thinking that detailed art will not show well. So, my idea is a facial of the Wizard looking out and at the reader. If we do this, it could be embellished and used on the dust Jacket with more color and detail. We went through this before when you created Wizard faces the first time. I was looking for one with menacing, mad, devious, and cruel features.  We never got there and I settled for what you did and moved on.  For the cover, I still want this. I will include some of the images as examples that I included before. If we can't get it to my satisfaction this time, I will give the face only to someone else. You will still create the books and layout of the books.  I specified that I might use different artists on this project as one of my conditions in our initial agreement to which you agreed. I wanted to be upfront about this - so it is not personal. If you can't create that kind of image then know that the person who does create it will not be able to replicate the beauty in your art.

 

Please review the attached pictures.

Peeky,

 

I see you give up the idea to show the insidious and evil Wizard's face. I told you earlier that the sinister face will scare the viewer. I will do the inspired face like in video you attached.  It will be fundamentally a new face. Tomorrow I'll send a sketch. I also need to know exactly what the text will be for each book cover to make the design.

 

I have only this:

 

Title

Author

Book One?

Book Two?

Gold Commemorative Edition (I think this should be prominent)

 

Thanks,

 

Ruslan

I have not given up on that idea which is why I said you could use anyone of those, but it has to be striking...and it cannot be a happy face

 

The books Text - Also I am open to suggestions on words and phrases - you arrange text as needed

 

The title and Author should be on each book.

 

Here are other suggestions

 

Book One of the The Wizard Was Odd Trilogy

 

Gold Commemorative Edition - Maybe across the top front cover image

 

Celebrating 120 Years - Maybe the last text beneath the front cover image

 

On the Second Book

 

The title and Author should be on each book.

 

Here are other suggestions

 

Book Two of the The Wizard Was Odd Trilogy

 

Gold Commemorative Edition - Maybe across the top front cover image

 

Celebrating 120 Years - Maybe the last text beneath the front cover image

 

Great job - I like the storm and lightning...

 

However,

 

Give this idea some thought...I think your immediate reaction will be "No". So think about how to do it.

 

What do you think about superimposting the OZ logo over the attached Cover? Leave the lightning  and back ground that you just createduse only the face of the Wizard part and tornado part. Keep he storm and lightning that you created for this cover?  I am thinking that with the right degree of transparency of the Wizard and Tornado - that it could be award winning combination.

 

You can likely get by with just the Wizard Face Blowing and the tail of the tornado below.

Hello Peeky,

 

I made a new captivating Wizard's portrait. Focused, gloomy and a little angry. I depicted such a beard to keep the image original. It is attached.

 

Regarding the dust jackets: this a new concept.  It is necessary to make new sketches.

 

I would like to be paid for the work done and then work on the new compositions.

 

In this new concept I will use basic part of the made sky.

 

Thanks,

 

Ruslan
