cover art  

Aghlg. I need a photographer or a … probably a photographer. Or an artist, but probably a photographer, who can create a Walker-Papers-cover-like image for me. I know exactly what I want, but the only photographer I know off the top of my head who almost certainly has the resources for it is Kyle, who I suspect is well out of my price range. Anybody else got a hunky old guy, a rapier and a photo studio handy? o.o

(Yes, this would be for cover art for the Gary novella, and yes, I’d been mumbling about doing cover art only if the Kickstarter campaign hit a certain dollar amount, but really, who are we kidding: you need the art to help sell the project. And besides, it would be SUCH A COOL COVER!)

Have you tried looking on stock photo sites to see if anyone has already taken something suitable?

Yeah, but the image I'm going for is so specific that to get anything even close I think it's gonna take a photo shoot!

What's your time frame for this? I dabble in photography, and I know of several photogs in my area who would love to be involved in a project like this.

Talk to Kyle. Seriously. I would bet that he's *not* out of your price range. He did me a solid doing my headshots when he was out in LA and was totally within my budget. If he's who you want, ask him. You won't regret it.

I've pinged him, yeah, on the basis that it's always better to let the other guy say no. We'll see what comes of it!

*crosses appendages for you*

Exactly. Because the worst that anyone can ever say is no.

I hope it works out!

Me too!

In other news, having just gone rooting through a couple pages of your LJ in hopes of seeing said headshots, I *love* the Ursa Major painting. <3 <3 <3

Kyle made me look amazing and I still can't possibly thank him enough. Best photos taken of me in years.

Oh, they're great pictures. Hooray!

The man has *mad* skillz. :)

Old like Gary old? Hmm. I bet I could make that happen...

I can get he rapier, easy-peasy, and I know a professional photographer who might be willing to help out for a reasonable price and phot-credit, but I can't for the life of me think of anyone I know in the appropriate age-group who I think fits the look for Gary. (Herself can't think of anyone we know in the right age-group that she would call "hunky," either.)
