Over at Steampunk Trails, where I am publisher, we're been kicking around a few cover ideas. One thing that keeps coming up is having a couple of dogs in goggles that are in a motorized balloon speeding away from some form of danger. I liked it, the artist liked it, but I still decided to move on to some other ideas because I was afraid it was too cutesy. Still, I rather liked it. Sometimes we have to act for good of the project.
I suddenly find myself dealing with artists again. It's the one chore that never escapes me. I'm sure when I kick the bucket and arrive at hell they'll put me in charge of the art department. But steampunk needs art and I'll obtain it. But I still find dealing with artists frustrating.
I like printers. Printers are fine people. I had a dream last night about a printing shop. And all the people who worked there were dogs. And all of the dogs were wearing goggles. Wonder what Sigmund Freud would think of that?
