Rejection is fun!

I wanted to post a link to Rejected by Covered. It's fun to see what art hasn't made it to the regular Covered site. Plus, today, it shows a cover of mine! Here's my original post when I first created it. I debated who should take the place of the Cowardly Lion. I recently discovered Action Comics #243. Had I known about it at the time, I might have made it an all DC parody...

Hmm, now that I type this, there might actually be a fun DC story in there somewhere...

Really. Rejected? It's great.

I wonder why covered did not post your WIZARD cover? It's really neat and well done.

The main goal of Covered Blog is to show a different artistic take on covers, not to create parodies or mash ups. I've had several other pieces on Covered, and knew I was taking a chance when I made this one. It's all good!

Anonymous - I think the fact that "Rejected" exists as a blog is to highlight the work that simply doesn't fit the criteria, not to necessarily put it forward as lesser.

Kerry, I freaking loved this. I keep coming across it and it makes me giggle every time.

Great stuff you got there, Kerry.

How about this: young Clark Kent as Dorothy (no cross-dressing . . . he's a Kansas farmboy, so I think he could fit), Shelby as Toto, Batman as Scarecrow (going with irony), Wonder Woman as Tin Woodsman (Woodswoman . . . still with irony) and Green Lantern as Cowardly Lion. Could it work?
