The Long Kiss Goodnight

long kiss goodnight

This week’s cover challenge is for the movie poster, The Long Kiss Goodnight. Another movie we haven’t seen, but we did our due diligence in researching. We didn’t want to focus on the violent aspect of the movie so we focused on the duality aspect instead (the duality of the main character’s past and present, good versus evil, violence versus peace).

I chose two pictures from artist Edmund Dulac.

Cover Makeover: Six Days, Seven Nights

6 days 7 nights

This week’s Cover Makeover is for the movie poster for Six Days, Seven Nights. I have to tell you, I struggled with this one. Mom and I searched all through her photos (and that’s A LOT!) before we found one – or more we liked. I finally settled on something from a group of photos from mom’s trip to Jamaica when she was just a kid – back in the 1960s. But which one to choose? So many! Here’s what we did:

i finally decided on this photo of the beach. It has a greenish hue to it so I changed to black and white in PicMonkey.

After cropping it - this wasn't the final crop, but you get the idea, I noticed it had a greenish hue (natural aging)

So, again using PicMonkey I cut it out of the background and tried it on the beach. I didn't like it.
