Chad Taylor and I have been doing a sporadic comic together over this past year called City Lights (he’s written a third episode, I’m yet to draw it). We’re also collaborating on a film together – an original screenplay of his called Realiti.
Chad recently asked me draw a cover for the Kindle version of his novel Heaven. Of course I jumped at the chance. We looked at a bunch of pulp book covers and comics (like Modestly Blaise – if only I could draw like Jim Holdaway!) as we headed for the above image. The legs were inspired by those on one of the pulps we found.
Heaven was made into a film by Miramax in 1998 by Scott Reynolds, starring Martin Donovan.
