Our first job together!

May 10, 2011

Remember today as the day we landed our first real job as a team. I am very excited to share this project with you and think we will produce five smashing book covers.

The copyrights of the books for tween girls are reverting to the author from Bantam, Doubleday, Dell – Books for Young Readers, the publisher that originally published them in 1998 and 1999 and sold close to a half of a million copies. I hope the author sells a half million more copies.

I sent my initial proposal and portfolio samples to the author last night and mentioned that you could provide great input. The cover samples and ideas that I sent to the author today, via Guru.com, while you and I discussed the project on Facebook chat, sealed the deal. Reach around and slap yourself on the back for me.

This will be as fun as the posters we designed in Adobe Illustrator for your school project, but this one PAYS us!
