Default Pulp cover pastiche

I painted this tempera recently for the Chicago in 2012 World Science Fiction Convention Bid. The bid committee is commissioning Chicago-area science fiction authors to write pulp-pastiche stories and artists to create covers for them. They are given away to people who pay to support their bid. Some of the stories are also posted online.

I enjoyed putting a number of Chicago-specific references in this.

Credit my husband for the magazine title idea, and my daughter for the name of the article inside (there is no actual article, it's all part of the joke).

Although they haven't posted this cover online yet, others (and another of mine but in acrylics) can be seen at
