Would make a damn fine album cover, or would do if albums still came in twelve inch sleeves.

Way cool. Etc.

Very cool, and that's why I don't live in the desert.

Love it.  20 seems like a lowball estimate.
Rayjmaraca's avatar
can only attribute this to the story I painted it for.  I'd agree it's a lowball estimate.

definitely an influence.  The first time I drew this creature which I like to call Mr. Pink was while I was camping in the desert and sitting at camp.  The vibe of my surroundings must have been similar to some of the areas in the books.

This looks like it could be a great poster/cover for a stoner rock band.
