Here's a retro science fiction pulp magazine cover for a magazine that doesn't exist, but probably ought to: THRILLING TALES OF THE DOWNRIGHT UNUSUAL.

In this imaginary issue we have that nail-biting page turner "The Toaster with TWO BRAINS", in which our heroes delve deep into the hostile lair of Doctor Rognvald, beneath the volcanoes of Iceland - only to discover that this evil genius has created the ultimate malevolent kitchen appliance: the Toaster with TWO BRAINS! Is it unstoppable? Immovable? Relentless? Horrifying? Unkillable? You bet it is.

Because a toaster with one brain isn't terrifying. But two? Talk about the heebie-jeebies!

=========================================

No, I can't really explain it, and if I could, I probably wouldn't. As usual it's a 3DS Max/Photoshop excursion into the realms of the improbable and - of course - the downright unusual.

Just awesome!

And the brains have also one eye each - will this madness never stop?

Yes, those brains have some terrible depth perception problems.

Cute. When you're not quite ready for the scare of "Tales of Terror" or the thrill of "Thrilling Science Wonder Stories", but want something downright unusual, here's your magazine. ;)

My toaster always burns my toast. I think it's the start of a Great Toaster Uprising...

Brains with eyeballs, no less. Well it'd scare me if I found that in the kitchen some morning...

I wonder if they attack with flaming pop-tarts?

Never cinnamon to deal with this toaster alone!
Definitely the worst thing since cursed bread.

Well done or burnt at the edges.

Looks great.

Brillant!
This is an amazing piece. I would totally subscribe to that publication.
I really love pulp, and you have managed to capture the essence really well; Everything from the poses and costumes, to the concept and design. The background and props scream "Retro-Futurism"
Also, I really dig that helmet, and a Toaster with two brains is pure genius.
