Here's the just-completed rough sketch (8.5" x 11", pencil on bond) for the wraparound cover for Pyr
's forthcoming edition of Robert Silverberg's classic SON OF MAN. It seems a little strange to publicly display in-progress work while I'm still working out that job for a client. I doubt I'll make a habit of this in future, but I've been having fun chats with Pyr's editorial director Lou Anders
about this cover, and we thought it might be fun to share this and see where the final art ends up. So with his consent, voila.
Liner note: I have no idea why, but I've been listening to Led Zeppelin's first album while working on this. "How Many More Times" has been playing a lot while I'm drawing.
Pyr will release the brand-new trade paperback edition of SON OF MAN in 2008.
