a once crowded sky cover...

as some of you may know, a while back i was asked by tom king to illustrate his novel "A ONCE CROWDED SKY".  the cover was to be based on an old painting of superman i'd done.  i was both extremely flattered and incredibly daunted.  after a lot of kicks at it, though, i think we came up with something really nice.


halfway through the project simon & schuster asked if i could make it into a wrap around cover. ultimately, though, they decided to scrap that aspect, but if anyone's interested here's the back cover in all it's glory. (minus an inch wide strip to join the two together. my scanner wasn't quite big enough-- theirs was)

...exciting stuff, huh?

buy the book.
