The Under the Skin: Therian Community Voices project is nearing its completion! (For new folks, information on the project can be found here (http://www.werelist.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=1020)). We have around thirty essays from twenty-two authors and our committee has put in hours of work organizing, editing and coordinating.

We would like to call upon the community again to submit work: not writing this time, but visual art. We are looking for an image for the cover of this collection. We know there are plenty of talented artists in our community and we would welcome anyone to submit work that they feel would best represent a collection of personal essays from the therian community.

Please submit a link to a high-resolution image on this thread by September 15th. We'll then have a vote by the community for the best cover. If there are not a lot of submissions, the project committee will choose whichever submission we feel best fits the project.

We all look forward to seeing the work you submit and to the completion of this community project!

Despite no one posting any submissions yet, I made two myself. ;)

As a side note to the species represented on #2. I thought using each of the authors' 'kin types would look nice and give them a special shout out for helping with the project. So that's why I chose the species that I did. ;)

I too would vote on the second one. I don't like the typeface of the first one. Those "Papyrus" sort of looking fonts always seem offputting to me.

Damn, I forgot about this, though. I meant to contribute. :/ Wish things wouldn't have been so busy lately...

I just like to say that I like both covers, But if you can only have one. I go with the second cover.

Not enough time for me to put together something I would be satisfied with.

I needed to start on it before the semester got rolling. Too busy now.

But I really like what you came up with.

The second one looks great! If I can find some time I might try to make one before the 15th.
