Hi everybody. I've decided that after posting over 1000 covers on Covered it is time to put it to rest. There are a few reasons for this. One is that submissions are down quite a bit since the blog's heyday when I could get 10 -15 a week. The other is that although Covered didn't take a ton of time to set up, it was time that I could be using to do my own comics. Since I'm trying to get a graphic novel finished while working a day job, it's very valuable time to for me.
There were times that I would be sent multiple covers from one artist and I would schedule these to post months in advance. Since I still have some of these to post, I've decided to have Covered go out with a bang. For the next week or so, I'm going to post two covers a day until I run out.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of the artists who sent covers to this blog. 1,000 covers is a lot and there are a lot of great artists who have been featured here. Running this, I've had the pleasure to discover strong new talents as well as getting to work with some of my heroes. It's been a wonderful experience. I'd also like to thank those who would visit and leave the occasional comment. Sadly, nobody got paid doing this, it was a labor of love for all involved. Feedback was all that the artists were going to receive for hours of work. The blog will stay up, so if you see something you love, leave a comment and let them know.
