This weeks Cover Make Over challenge is the Counting Crows album, This Desert Life. The original cover is the guy dressed in a suit but his face and head is replaced by a goldfish bowl with 2 goldfish. I wasn’t sure how to approach this challenge, so I concentrated on the title, ‘This Desert Life’ which obviously suggests someone living in a desert.
I used stock photographs and layered the items on top of each other. Starting with the desert background, I added a small pyramid in the top right hand corner. Then the goldfish in the bowl which was another stock photo. I finished off with the text, and finally added the sun with some rays to give an impression of the desert in the midday heat. That’s about it.
