Diabolical Plots Year Three: The Art

This Spring I had the pleasure of creating the cover art for Diabolical Plots: Year Three, an ebook anthology of stories from Diabolical Plots, an online magazine of science fiction and fantasy. The editor, David Steffen, was fantastic to work with and it's my hope we will work on future projects. He previously licensed The Alchemist for the cover of the Long List Anthology Volume 3.

For this new anthology I created an original illustration inspired one of the stories in the book. For Now, Sideways by A Merc Rustad is a beautiful, emotionally charged story about a woman at the end of a war on an alien planet. It's not your typical military science fiction and I didn't want the art to be either. The painting is as much telling a story, through the characters, as it is expressing an emotion through color palette.
