In a shocking display of competency, I remembered to periodically SAVE my progress as I was working on this tonight in Painter! She can be taught, folks!
As you may remember this is a book cover for my friend's middle school ministry devotional. Is that a roll of *ahem* TP on the arm of the chair? Yes... yes it is. Fred knows how to get the attention of his less-than-mature middle school audience and he's calling his book "Thoughts From the Throne". It was my responsibility to convey that double meaning in a classy manner.
Since I positively ooze class this is what I came up with. I'm obviously still in the process of shading and all that business.
