    Usual REMAKE/REMODEL rules apply:

    No pen-portraits. This is ART ONLY. Posting just a bunch of text, or a scribble and a vast number of words, will get the thread closed and your account banned.

    NO MORE PHOTO-MANIPULATION "art". I'll just delete them. People have been drenching recent threads with several pieces at a time that they've knocked out in photoshop in 2 minutes with no thought at all. I consider this to be taking the piss now.

    HOWEVER: I will allow the interpolation of ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS into the work.

    No more than ONE submission by any one person in any one REMAKE/REMODEL.

    Now then.

    Jess Nevins showed me this magazine. Ran for five issues in 1942. So you're covering #6. It's a crime pulp, of course. Or, I guess a romance/crime pulp.

    I am going to show you the two covers Jess found.

    Not so bad, right?

    Here's number 2.


    So here's the deal:

    You are an artist/designer.

    You have to put together the cover for issue 6 of LOVE-CRIME DETECTIVE.

    You are working in the 21st Century.

    Cope with that.

    Must be the post-pony stress that drives Warren to challenge us like this...
    Let's see what we all come up with.

    *shuffles through her mental Rolodex of people she knows* There's gotta be a transvestite in here somewhere. Err... who lives close and is willing to be a model.

    Ugh. I love and hate you, Warren. Love and hate.

    I don't think those two covers can be surpassed in any way.

    Why does the first cover look like Alec Baldwin hiding from Willow from Buffy?

    I've missed these so much. Time to lurk and enjoy, like a proper Peeping Tom.

    My pseudo-dyslexia kept reading the first one as "Passion Dooms the Gay Window", and I couldn't figure out what that was supposed to mean...

    Raid71: Great start. Love the gun-barrel cigarette.

    Cornball tagline a nod to caffiene withdrawal and the genre of the original.

    I don't know anything about design, but I have a photograph that would be perfect. Is it kosher for me to offer it up for use by whoever wants it?
    • CommentTimeAug 10th 2010
    @Krakatoakatie, I'm not sure I have time for a drawing, but I would love to put on my design hat and use your photograph if that's kosher. You can email it to me at (old email address, stems from the nickname "Paca," so no jokes about my spelling abilities which are almost always fabulous).
