NIGHT FOLK Halloween Teaser 3 by IanStruckhoff NIGHT FOLK Halloween Teaser 3 by IanStruckhoff
NIGHT FOLK 2011 Matthew Dow Smith

Cover by Ian Struckhoff (Ian X.)


My good friend Matthew Dow Smith is finishing his first novel, and I'm doing the covers. (Photography, photo manipulation, and some of the design.)

If all goes well, these covers will be done by Halloween. In the meantime, here's the final teaser.

I see the woman. You can see its from about waist up, and shes topless. If I were to guess shes blond as well. I would make it slightly more pronounced by maybe another 5% for the female layer. Btw, Im using a pc, 22" lcd LG monitor.

Interestingly, you're partly right but imagining a lot that isn't there. (Well, that isn't in the source materials, I guess.)

One thing I have noticed is, when something is printed, versus what you see on the screen can be quite different as well. I do love the idea, and what you have already.

Yeah, I usually keep that in mind. Color profiles help a lot there.

I see a couple of faces, actually, a couple of them screaming - at different angles...and a few silhouettes.

The cool thing is, that means you're seeing stuff I didn't put there.

Can I ask-- Are you looking in a Mac, a PC, or some other device? I'm finding the monitor and color profile matters.

PC, and I'm pretty sure its well calibrated. But you might be right that its my monitor.

Actually, I think it's more that it's my monitor. Macs use a different default gamma, so I created the image on a system that doesn't show it the way most people see it.

Face above what appears to be a white sheet or we could say a ghost with a face, arms stretched out on the left side of the tree, a bat mouth on the sheet, the sheet/ghost has a pointed head etc. There is a lot of things I can see but I will have to let others come up with thoughts . And you can send me a note and I will tell you what else I see.

Heh. Interestingly, that means you're seeing things I didn't put there. Which isn't to say they aren't just as real...

There are about 10 more images I can see. What I should do is make copies and mail them to you so you can see what I see. I do like the the image and no doubt it will fit the book cover perfectly;)

Knowing you, that somehow doesn't surprise me.

Good to see you at NYCC, by the way!

Nice work Ian! Is there a face in there too? In red, or is it my crappy eyes?
