The podcast for the prequel short story to The Beggar’s Opera is almost done, and I have to choose between these two covers to go on the front page for Youtube. Jellyfish play a role in the story, and since they are so otherworldly, I thought they might make for an interesting cover. The photographs are courtesy of my pal, Paul Gaskin, who managed to capture these marvellous animals on film as if they are parachuting from the sky.
What do you think? Which do you prefer between the first (or Big Jellyfish, as Paul calls it) and the second (which has a number of them)? Let me know!
Update: Here’s the final version!
