This was the first cover I made (2011). It's based on a shot I made out the back door in Colden, during a big snowstorm, a good 7 years before I needed to make Perry's cover.


I tried for some time to make it work as a straight image, but I couldn't. So I inverted it and played some other tricks on the tree and the wind-blown snow and the monster reflection in the glass door.


I had the idea of making the title a bit indistinct. I don't think I'd do that again.


If I were doing it again, I wouldn't use the font I used for Perry's name, either.


So here you're looking at the work of a guy who's just starting to learn.
