Cover Design Fun

A couple of my author friends at J. Ellington Ashton Press were in need of help with their covers.  I don't consider myself a great designer, but I've done all my own covers, so I thought I would help them out.


Contained Decay is a zombie tale by T.L. Decay.  It starts with an outbreak at the Bedford Institute, asylum for the criminally insane.  It starts out hot and just gets hotter as the zombies starting eating their way though the town.


The first cover was great and I only hoped I could do it credit.  After getting some input from our publisher, I took it the cover in a totally different direction.  The first one accentuated supernatural elements, but I went with a more natural, yet terrifying opponent.
