Artwork – Exit Strategy

without comments

Exit Strategy - CoverAnother cover for 19 Nocturne Boulevard, for the episode Exit Strategy. Anthology shows are so much fun because it’s different every time, and now I’ve gone from science-fiction to “fairytale/noir” and landed on the “modern thriller” square on the board.

This art was not commissioned; it was my alternative to The Outpost as a sample of work. I had the idea and sketch prior to Cry Wolf, but it was actually completed afterwards. I had the concept in my head almost immediately on listening to the play, but I lacked two important elements: the D&D rulebook (which you can scarcely see anyway), and, most importantly, the D&D role-playing dice. Eventually I caught up with my brother and he loaned me the dice, and my Dad loaned me one of his old pocket-knives with more character than my own Swiss Army Knife. The blood stains I added in “post” neatly hides a rust stain. :-)

Only the blood and the combi-van photograph are elements I had to add in. Kicking myself that I’d made life difficult for myself by not including a dummy photo in the photograph for placement and easy-resizing. Made it a 10 minute job instead of a 30 second job.
