Art Direction: Now now, the naked gladiator in a helmet theme is completely in this season, so I insist! Make sure to cover his giblets in shadow because we don’t want a meat and two veg hanging out to offend readers. Side bum, is acceptable.

Sophaloaf’s Art Direction: Okay, nothing says the future of publishing more than an oversized walkman that runs on floppy disks. Just imagine handsets so big theyll have to hover above a bunch of skyscrapers like a space ship.
Published 1990

Ironically, now sold as an E-book.
Many thanks to Sophaloaf!

Hex Comments: What is THE THING? I’m not sure, but possibly a giant meatloaf with a rubber arm and a pair of huge headlamp eyeballs.

I never turn down a warped blue man who's missing a crotch and wearing leggings.... wait... Click for full image

Art Direction: I don’t know how you did it when you worked for others but here at New English Library, we go out and get drunk. Then take LSD. Then run around the countryside for a good weekend continually engaging in any type of physical fulfillment we can find. Whatever you’ve drawn by the end we’ll shove on some cover.

Attack kitten attttaaaaaaaack!Click for full image

Raj’s Art Direction: Hmm, green, let’s go for a green rural idyll, with a giant green flying cat. Oh, and a woman in a green corset and very little else. In fact, make the woman riding the cat, while holding a sword. And that still leaves a little bit of space, why not fill it with a giant moon?
Published 1976

Many thanks to Raj!

Don Comments: In the Future

  • Your basketball shoes will be shiny.
  • Your garage will have lots of random gages and tubes on its walls.
  • “Dead Gopher with Habanero” will be a popular flavor of cat food, judging by the expressions of this guy and his cat respectively.

Published 1957

Many thanks to Don!

Libraryman comments: I love how it seems as if the characters are just randomly placed around this dead body. Kind of like a cluedo clue. “It was Sinbad with the scimitar in the dungeon!”
Published 1995

This cover… is perfect!
Libraryman, good show sir!

Knautwerks art direction:

Okay, so, its an anthology of stories on ghosts, witches and demons. Cover ideas anyone?
How about a brain damaged dragon frolicking in a lake?
GENIUS!

Published 1971 (maybe)

So it’s a children’s book, but is there a better way to start your Monday!?!
Many thanks to Knautwerk!
