Cover for Vika's Avenger

Lawrence Watt-Evans has posted this to his Facebook page, and I guess that means I can post it too, now. Here’s the cover illustration for his Kickstarter-funded Vika’s Avenger.

I’m working on the interior illustrations now. They’ll be a lot like the illustrations I did for Starship Sofa Stories; they’re rendered in the same way I do my full color work but – of course – in greyscale, and I’m aiming for a kind of open layout, with the images enclosing the text, that I hope is something like those wonderful old illustrations by Virgil Finlay and others back in the age of magazines.

Like these two, I mean:

Illustrations for Starship Sofa Stories

This ought to keep me stapled to my desk for the next few weeks. I don’t mind: I really like working on books. The style of the book layout here will be a lot like what I planned for my next Thrilling Tales book, which is still in a state of primal chaos.

Mr. Schenck, that is one awesome cover painting. As another admirer of Virgil Finlay and other illustrators of his time I have to say you’re doing a bang-up job of continuing a great tradition. I’m really looking forward to getting my copy of the book.
