Inlay mockups

The saga of my artwork for Lady Gasoline continues. Since you all helped me so much with shaping the cover, thought you might like to look at a mock-up of the inlay. A cool crowd called Verdict in New Zealand will be finishing it off and laying it out properly.

For now it doesn't include the 'be a work of art' stuff - i.e., all the photos of my er, fans...but it will do when completed.

My photoshopping is pretty rubbish - I haven't even managed to take 10 years off me, let alone get the lines straight. So remember, it's all rough, right. Any comments welcome.

One more votes needed.

Apologies for bombarding you all with all these art-related questions. But based on your feedback (and of course my own personal preferences) we've narrowed things down quite a lot. I'd like to ask you one more time about concepts. There are basically two mock-ups to choose from (ignore some of the dodgy Photoshopping, but you'll get the idea).

Tell me whether you prefer Option 1 or Option 2...thanks a bunch.
