This is a single page illustration I did back in May for my very good friend Scott 'Doc' Vaughn's :icondocredfield: book "Warbirds of Mars: Stories of the Flight". The image was used as a visual for one of the stories (The Skull of Lazarus; written by Megan Vaughn) within the novel.

Warbirds of Mars is a sci-fi pulp novel that takes place in 1940's where Nazis conspire with aliens for world domination, the heroes wear fedoras and the dames are hot. ;) I couldn't help but we nostalgic of my one true child hood hero, Indiana Jones, while reading the story.

When I was offered this opportunity I wanted to take a step outside of my normal "style" and approach it with experimentation in mind similar to the way that I tackled my last "Oz" cover for Dig Dog Ink.

If you're curious to where the book is available then search no further than the convention circuits or Amazon.com: www.amazon.com/books/dp/098495…
