    This one is the best so far in my opinion. If the needle could only look like clock’s hands it would be a join of a compass and a clock.
    I am thinking also about something with two bottoms (or more) because it is about it is it not ? 🙂

    Hi, Raf.

    This is my favourite, too, by far. Some of my other attempts feel very unfinished in comparison to this one. I’ll have to let this simmer for a few days, but I’m feeling much more confident about it than any of the others. I can really see this being the cover.

    “I am thinking also about something with two bottoms (or more) because it is about it is it not ?”

    How do you mean?

    I tend to agree, I like this one best. I’m not entirely feeling the curved title though it doesn’t seem to flow right.

    Hi, Darryl.

    I was expecting your opinion on the join of a clock and a compass but not a word 😦

    A box with two bottoms is used to hide secrets. You get to the bottom thining it is all (like most people think about what they know about the world) but there is something under the bottom. There can be even something under the second bottom.

    Have you looked at surrealism art ?

    Hi, Raf.

    “I was expecting your opinion on the join of a clock and a compass but not a word.”

    Sorry. 🙂 Mmm, it doesn’t resonate with me, actually. I’m not sure what it would mean. The straightforward compass is basically communicating the notion of navigating or finding the way forward, which I like.

    “A box with two bottoms is used to hide secrets. You get to the bottom thining it is all (like most people think about what they know about the world) but there is something under the bottom. There can be even something under the second bottom.”

    Ah, yes. You’re quite right, that’s it exactly. And that’s certainly what attacted me to this image. Something pressing through from underneath the physical layer.

    “Have you looked at surrealism art ?”

    I toyed with using one of those optical illusion paintings where there are two completely different things on display depending on what your perceive. Didn’t go for it, though.

    Have you seen the cover from “This New Ocean” by William E Burrows ? It has a secret message on it which can be understood only if you know what you are looking at. This would be a good idea.

    Hi, Raf.

    I’ve just had a look at the cover. The only thing out of the ordinary I can spot is that the image is dividing into three by vertical black lines, and the cloud formations in the central image don’t fit with the ajacent images. But I don’t know why.

    Do you know the secret message? Am I on the right track?
