At last a color scan of the cover art I did for Xero
9, previously seen here in black and white. Click to enlarge. The cover is posted here to as a correction and clarification, since it was reprinted in The Best of Xero
(Tachyon, 2004) with a caption crediting another artist. It was created by dripping rubber cement on an illustration board, letting it dry, covering it with India ink, pulling up the rubber cement, drawing in the white areas (with a bit of Wally Wood influence evident) and smoothing on some Zip-a-tone. Then it was printed on red dayglo paper. Apparently I had some notion of integrating the Xero
logo with the art.
