You’re not the only ones!

After sending her my fourth revision, I got this reply today from a client about a book cover I’m working on:

“I love the border! Could we try it in black? The blues/purples are great, but seem to clash with her clothing. Also, could Mrs. B be just a bit smaller? Perhaps 2″ shorter? Thanks so much for hanging in there with me.”

Had to sigh. This is a small job for a friend. No money. No creative brief. No formal arrangements. Interesting is that this is where micromanaging usually occurs. It rarely happens, at least to me, under professional conditions with thousands and sometimes tens of thousands of dollars on the table.

Not much at stake here, of course. But this can happen. Probably shouldn’t offer help unless you’re available to deal with it.
