Book cover: Under My Roof by Nick Mamatas (2007)

Update: the final cover for Under My Roof by Nick Mamatas, for Soft Skull Press:

I think it turned out rather well. I changed the original gnome image (thanks to Mike Monteleone for the photograph) to a more capricious and semi-smiley gnome (complete with thumbs-up), and completed the spine and back covers.


Here's a comp I just turned in for a reprint of Nick Mamatas' great short novel Under My Roof. I was a big fan of his previous novel Move Under Ground and so when Soft Skull Press asked me to create the cover, how could I say no?
I'll post more on this when I finish the spine/back/etc. I'm sure it will look different by then!
