[Misspent Youth] Cover sketch

As you may know, I’ve been working with Jennifer Rodgers and Joshua AC Newman on the art and layout for Misspent Youth. I’m happy to say that I have today a preview image to share with you of what the cover for Misspent Youth will look like.

Awesome, huh?

  1. I like the style of it. Not sure what the image is with POW on it, is that another one of Jennifer Rodgers famous penises? Because wow, I’ll never buy a book with that cover, to be honest.

  2. It’s an indie game, it’s got to have penis on it right? And mine is bloody, so it’s even better!

  3. Well, I might buy the pdf. But seriously, a penis on the cover? That’s silly.

  4. I maintain that the sole metric of success in independent publishing is how many penises one can cram into it. I not only have one, it’s going to be like 5 inches long (which sounds not so impressive but it’s not to scale, look at the size of those Youthful Offenders!) and it’s going to be on the cover!

    Surely this will lead to uncountable bitchez and richez?

  5. There’s nothing silly about penises. There’s boobs all over covers anywhere.

  6. I need to nip this in the bud before it goes too far! Apparently I was a little too subtle in my earlier post. That cover? Totally a hoax.

    So here’s the story: Jenn, Joshua, and I are emailing back and forth about the cover design. I mention Jenn showing us a sketch when she has the time and Joshua goes, “Well, of course you want a cock, right? That’s why you picked Jenn?”

    So Jenn shoots us an email. “This is a quick sketch I did.”

    I think, that’s got to be a joke. Oh shit, what if it’s not. I mean, I’m SURE it’s a joke but if I say, “Is that a joke?” and it’s not, I’m gonna feel like a huge dick. I fret. I call her. She laughs very long and very loud at me. I deserve it. I talk to Joshua. He does the same. I decide I should spread the pain.

    So, yeah, no cock in the final game (although there’s a surprising amount of cock in issues of Maximum Rocknroll, the ‘zine I’m basing this on.
