Artwork Description

One half of the wraparound cover art I designed for the convention programme of Capricon 23 - The Old One brings his own pieces to the cosmic game of chess, Grecian urn style.
The theme for Capricon was "Gods vs. Monsters", and participants were allowed to choose sides when they registered. This side of the cover art was the front for those who opted to be "Monsters" for the event.

As soon as I have the go-ahead from the con staff I do plan to offer prints and imprinted gifts of the full cover.

Ah yes - "In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming!" When asked to render a cover for the theme of "Gods vs. Monsters", I couldn't think of a better ancient contemporary for Zeus to play cosmic chess with than the Old One himself - who better to represent monsters? And with the King of all Monsters Godzilla as his mortal champion, what more could a Titan ask for? Wink
