Bilbabalbaul? I've got a cream for that. Click for full image

Stevyn Comments: I’m ashamed to say that I was the artist in this case. A terrible cover for what is possibly the worst fantasy book ever written.

And with such great lines in this book such as, ‘The effeminate albino pursed his thick lips in that certain way to suggest he was male, but homosexual.’

The nipples? Just to make me look good. Ohhhh yea.Click for full image

So lets say we have a black man and I really mean black. We’ll have him dressed in white skin, with nipples, because without the nipples it would just look strange. I am sure we can fob it off as social commentary. As long as we have the nipples.

I ponder... can rooster bears breathe in space? Nope...Click for full image

Scott B’s Art Direction: We don’t want anyone to confuse this with the film “Labyrinth” which has just recently been released, so put something on there that nobody will mix up with that. Ah, how about a rooster-bear pondering deep thoughts? That’s the stuff.

Suppositories... the only cure for bighanditis... doesn't help bigheaditis much though.Click for full image

Bibliomancer’s Art Direction: I want a picture that will be timeless. Like a mash-up of Peter Max meets Chairman Mao. Art like that will never go out of style. Now give me another foot-long pill and leave me alone. I’ve got a lot of art-making to do!

The phone always rings when your just in the shower... phasing into a parallel world!Click for full image

Art Direction: Hey remember that time I had too many of those strawberry “stickers.” It was hilarious, I was all like, ‘OH GWAD help me! I’m fading into another world!’ Lets just draw that, expect, miss out the parts with my genitals. Keep the moustache though…
