Three words

The process for putting together the cover for Hump, my first trade collection with Ontario's Palimpsest Press, began with the following request from poet/publisher Dawn Kresan:

"Tell me what you have in mind for the cover. Don't suggest a certain artist but give me some adjectives on the look. Is the look adventurous, curious, wild or conservative. Three adjectives should give me the feel you want."

I'm not particularly good at restricting myself to a few words but, but...

My three adjectives: visceral, subtle, ambiguous.

Now I only have to get a leg up on my Author Questionnaire. And edit the ms. Heh.
