Here are a couple of interior paintings and the cover from:
"The Plane Above-Secrets of the Astral Sea"

There a couple of images here that were inspired by some classic paintings. My good friend Jeff Menges is doing a seminar on the influence of Golden Age illustrators on contemporary artists and it reminded me of these, so....

  1. I remember when this book first came into my local Borders shop because I was so enthralled by the cover. It is fantastic. I really like the special treatment on the actual book of using limited gloss which made the character pop out even more.
