Hello, all, Jowybean is doing kick-ass cover art for my short story anthology I’ll be selling at BronyCon. I need lettering to match it! My first choice says he’s swamped, so I’m looking to commission someone to do cover lettering for my BronyCon Bookstore story anthology. It’s a book shaped (6 inches wide by 9 inches high) version of a ponified version of the cover of the "Breakfast in America" album by Supertramp. Here’s a semi-finished version, ignore the positioning and style of the "Super Trampoline", that’s just a placeholder.


I’m going to want it to basically say:

Breakfast in Equestria:
The Best Of:
SUPER TRAMPOLINE.

Here are a few reference pictures. The first is the original square album cover, and the next two are two different ways to extend it vertically manifested in cassette tape covers. I’ll want some mix of these, which obviously we would work out.

If this project interests you, please respond here or PM me or hit me up on Discord: Super Trampoline#6139 or email me at bchandleremail@gmail.com or text me at (714) 496-3119. Please include your proposed price range and turn around time. Thank you for your time, and look forward to working with you!

Do you have the original image without the text? I’m not willing to do this for money, but might do it for fun because fun. If it matters I’ve been working in graphics arts since the 90’s, have a degree in "the arts", and used to make print advertisements, brochures, and signage just like this, but I’m retired now and slightly bored.

If I did this, the only thing I would ask is that I be allowed to upload it here.

Feel free to PM me the link to the original, and I’ll throw it into the grinder to see what comes out.

Hi, I probably should have come back here and said that I found a letterer, but I will keep you in mind if I or others need lettering in the future. Thank you, and have a great day!

(That said, if you want to offer feedback on the semi-finalized design, let me know.)

Hey I just remembered that I’m going to need to design a back and side of the book too! While those will reuse a lot of design elements, I’ll still need some help, and if you’re still interested in helping me with that, I’d be grateful.

Sorry, I got a music CD gig that will probably keep me busy the rest of the summer. I hope your project goes well though :)
