Cover Art

Posted in: Art, Ontario, Travel | 10

This week’s photo challenge is about creating the cover for an album, book, show or magazine which best represents the contents.

The artwork above ‘Winter Road Warrior’ was inspired by my life on the road as a sales person so hence I felt it would be a good fit for a book called the “The Travelling Salesman”. I am assuming there must be one out there somewhere!

Being on the road all the time comes with many challenges from traffic, the weather, to simply being away from home and family. Your car is not only your transport but it’s your place of work, so you become reluctantly reliant upon it and somewhat attached to it. You find yourself having a conversation with your GPS just to alleviate the boredom on long trips. I know some people think it is a glamorous lifestyle, but living out of suitcase and hotel hopping is really not a lot of fun when it’s your life!

I quit this lifestyle almost two years ago to follow my passion for art and I have to say I have no desire to go back to it.

I really love this one!

Good post, Pennie, and Very good Art! Kudos and Regards. πŸ™‚

Fantastic artwork Pennie. πŸ™‚

Beautiful image, Pennie! And I love the meaning behind it being a traveling salesperson, and the companionship one must feel with their mode of transportation πŸ™‚ As we graduated college, one of my dear friends had a job traveling every third week – one week prepping/researching, one week traveling, one week analyzing results/reporting. She listened to lots of audiobooks, way before GPS was around! And you’re right about it sounding lots more glamorous than it turned out to be!

Great image, Pennie. I don’t think I’d enjoy being a travelling salesperson. It looks like a tough job.
