As part of my New Year’s Resolution to blog more, here’s a little more behind the scenes stuff on Love and Capes. I was working on the cover of the fourth collection and needed a sky. I’d thoughtabout sunset, but given the impending birth, I wanted something more of the sunrise variety. But how to capture it. I’d browsed through Google Image Search for some inspiration.
But one morning I got up early to go to Panera before starting to work and I saw this, which I captured with my iPhone’s camera. Yeah, you might not think the sprawling vista of a strip mall is the most exciting thing, but that sky was exactly what I was looking for, and the inspiration for the sky on the cover.
