Black Moon - Paperback Cover

Another one from the archive: a cover I did for the late Byron Preiss, for a "Black Moon" mystery, one of a series of paperbacks...I scanned this from what I could find, a color xerox...fixed up in Photoshop.

Love the bold b/w design. Allows the colors to be very simple and minimal. Reads like a painting from a distance. Did you do the original color in photoshop?

This is an awesome piece!

Thanks a lot Benton and Roberto and Michael! It's great to get such a nice reaction---unexpected.

Benton--it was done before computers(1989) prismacolor pencil and black ink (marker I think) on coquille board, then I had a film positive made, then airbrushed/painted underneath that on paper---whew! It's a lot easier now, with Photoshop!
