Susan G Komen race for the cure cover flop!

"I want something light, fresh, fun and airy and full of hope!" Were the keywords I was given for this task. So I gave them (CBS Radio, my job) Meryl Streep's wild crazy energy inspired by that horrible movie Mamma Mia that just came out before I did this cover. Well, it was all subliminal, and I didn't notice it until I was finished. Ain't that a . . . .

So, I got two free movie premiere tickets from the radio station, and thought. . . Why not? If you haven't seen it, trust me don't see it! The gawd awful Abba tunes will be stuck in your head for days along with visions of Colin Firth dressed in gay Abba gear and you will sing it over and over in your brain and it will seep into your artwork subconsciously!!!

I had been working late into the hours on concepts, and taking care of my Mom during the time I created this cover. This particular concept obviously wasn't the one that was chosen, but I thought I'd post anyway since I worked so hard. And wouldn't ya know it. . . the one ad I disliked the most that I had done was chosen.

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you!

By the way, I know this cover bombed and I agree with it, but do any of you think it looks like a pharmaceutical ad? Just wondering :P
