Stay Away From the Waves

This cover is for Alice Clarke's contemporary, Learning to Swim.

It shows up a little grainy here, in the photo, but I assure you that when it was in Paint it looked crystal clear. Anyway, I enjoyed making this cover. I liked working under the certain color pallet, and mixing the typewriter font with the handwritten font. I figured I might as well choose a photo that includes water--after all, the main character's main objective is to learn to swim. I like that the person was both in a boat and holding a boat, and that her friends/compatriots were in another boat, sort of symbolizing for me that she feels alone.

Alice, if you have any problems with this cover please let me know.
