Eat Fish And Die – Awesome New Covers

Eat Fish And Die - Into The Wazoo of Death“Eat Fish And Die” is a series of satirical Mil SF short stories published by Hotspur Publishing. Two books have been released, and both have spiffy new covers made by the incredibly talented Mike Kingery. Here you can see the art used for the second installment of this series, Into The Wazoo of Death. And while Mike’s work is stunning, I thought I’d share a few images that demonstrate the process of cover art creation. Check out the following progression:

As you can see, we start from humble origins, but build up to a wonderful finished product. The thing I like most about working with Mike is his ability to collaborate. He doesn’t make a one-shot finished image and hope that it will do. He makes multiple tests, to get both feedback and inspiration, and then makes periodic updates that ensure the artwork meets expectations. Mike’s work is amazing, and I’m very happy to  have his talent next to mine as the series moves along. If you want to see more of Mike’s work, check out his website at the links provided.
