  5. On June 4th Gary blogged that hewas looking for designers tocome up with a cover for hisupcoming book.He received a lot of criticism assome people didn’t like the idea ofhaving to do work upfront and notget paid for it.Some had valid points,some just didn’t get it.
  6. I was on the train with acoworker on the way backhome after a busy fewdays of meetings.I told him all about thecontest and how I wasgoing to submit an entry.Like most of my designerfriends he thought it was astupid idea and went backto watching his movie.I kept working.
  7. It took me about 2 hours to complete.I’ve seen Gary speak 3 times, read all his blog posts,watched his videos and he’s replied to all my tweets.It’s almost like I had to do this for him.I submitted my design.
  8. I got an email a few months ago from Gary’s team sayingthanks for taking the time to design a cover but unfortunatelythey had decided to go in another direction.Bummer.
