I was pretty happy with one of the thumbnail sketches and went for a bigger, more detailed version. The sketch used the blue circles of the watch as it's main focus, the couple got lost with the crowd - they lost their importance. I knew in my gut the the circles would be used for the back art with a hand reaching out. Using the same concept on both sides would be wrong. Let alone, this did not feel like art from the original covers. I knew I had to start over. Maybe back to the record idea, maybe a full moon, something with a round shape to tie the two sides together.
