Message From Beyond the Veil HEAVY METAL Cover


Here is my entry into the Threadless HEAVY METAL cover challenge. PLEASE head over to… and VOTE a '5" NOW! 

I grew up reading my older brother's HEAVY METAL issues, and they simultaneously seduced, mystified, and scared the hell out of me. I felt like my design should somehow accomplish the same.

The imagery here is taken almost entirely from a semi-lucid dream I had a few years ago that I have not been able to forget. I believed it to be a lesson, or a warning of sorts. The woman represents my Anima, my Muse, and the longing for a chance to rebuild a once great love now forsaken.

Grant Morrison is an enormous inspiration to me, and I am thrilled to have him connect with my work. It would be a dream to collaborate with him someday.
