Faster than Light #3 Cover by bjhaber
What is not to love about bjhaber's cover for his graphic novel series, Faster Than Light? It has all of the classic science fiction tropes (astronaut, space, strange dimensional warp) and it's brilliantly drawn/painted as well.
bjhaber is an extremely talented artist who has been at the forefront of augmented reality and graphic novels. His Anomaly series incorporated AR brilliantly. And his newest FTL series is exceptional (We'll be reviewing it here at Rendo Mag soon).
What I personally like about this Faster Thank Light #3 cover is it's modern take on a pulp cover. The luridness of the pulp tradition has been translated into a real sense of the weird and strange. I think Freud called it the "uncanny". With a more realistic depiction of the scene, the viewer will likely take more time to try to understand the scene. The colors are wonderful, too. Deep purples, blacks and blues are just so beautiful. All of the panels in the series are like this.
Fine, fine work from Mr. Haber. I've made a small selection from bjhaber's gallery at Renderosity.com.
