Hey guys, I can finally show this one! Friday was the opening night of Light Grey Art Lab’s scifi show, Station Zero in Minneapolis! This show was so fun, each artists was sent a random pulp novel and had to recreate the cover. Mine was In The Kingdom of the Beasts, it started off explaining how there was a war between humans and beasts (genetically modified humans who were made to serve and work) and our main character, Mark Chaos was one of the main leaders of the rebellion. He’s traveling through space on his way home when he gets lost and encounters all of these strange worlds, very similar to greek Odyssey. In this piece I wanted to include a woman from the planet Black Star and the hallucinated space dragon from the last part of the book. I have a feeling the original illustrator didn’t read the story though because I couldn’t find anything that looked like that. The beasts were described as completely human looking with a distinct tattoo.
