What colors do you want to see in your design?
A simple, captivating cover focusing on the subject who was a black sheep (stuck out from rest of family because different) and blind (eyes squinting). Perhaps suggesting this is an inspirational journey through strange worlds (medical and fantasy worlds) about overcoming life and family challenges. From introduction: "In my inspirational, coming-of-age story, you’ll discover how to be happy every day, overcome everyday struggles and impact the lives of others. I’m a 92-year-old active mother, grandma and former teacher and professional counselor who helped make the world a better place. Legally blind from birth, I battled my disability, a deceitful dad and my own deep flaws." She grew up with two parents, one older brother and one younger sister (in case you want to show a blind black sheep with her family).
VALUES TO COMMUNICATE: Feelings - Poor blind black sheep has big life problems to overcome. Book messages - Never give up. Everthing will be better tomorrow. Don't let disability or life challenges stop you from enjoying life every minute of the day. Visual style -- Simple. Artistic. Bold.
IDEAS but be your creative self: All black cover. White line silhouette of a black sheep's head or body. Or all white cover with a solid black black sheep.
Group family portrait drawing showing each family member and the subject as a squinting black sheep (see attached file).
Other attached FILES include photo of subject and some sample cover styles that I like.
Trim Size: 6 x 9. Font styles: open
What to avoid
