Experimenting with ELF~FIN World Mermaid Awards Edition Covers



Jozef is in the throes of designing a new cover for the exclusive Elf~Fin: Hyfus & Tilaweed Preview World Mermaid Awards Limited Edition comic book. Neither of the covers you see here are definitive, as he will be playing with the dimensions and spacing under the "Elf~Fin" logo. Having said that, we each have our personal favourites and we'd be interested in your take as well.

As previously mentioned on the Elf~Fin website, this edition will also be limited to 250. It will NOT come with a Certificate of Authenticity. It will ONLY be released at MerCon at the World Mermaid Awards on Friday 12 to Saturday 13 August 2011 which is being held at the Mirage in Las Vegas. This particular cover will wrap around the previous edition of the Preview. The actual comic book will remain the same except for the ISBN and bar code information and the advertisements, as well as the new card cover which will contain a flip around WMA cover. For the collectors amongst you, it's a good reason to get to the WMA. Hope to see you there in August!

I prefer the sketch on the left

Yes, that's my favourite as well (I, being Julie). In the other sketch Jozef wanted to have Tilaweed raking the surface of the water with her fingers but from underneath. It will be interesting to see what will be the final version of the cover.
