Penciling Ghosts In The Machine

Here is the penciled first page of GHOSTS IN THE MACHINE, a full color short story that originally appeared in EPIC Illustrated back in the early 80’s. I was intent on creating the look of a computer generated environment a decade before personal computers really started to be used in graphic arts and these pencils were a first step in a kind of interesting and convoluted process that ultimately seemed to work pretty well. The story itself and my description of how I did it are included in SHINY BEASTS from King Hell Press. You can get a signed copy at my on-line store.

    Yes, Thank You! I’ve been looking to see who did this story I hadn’t seen since the time of publication. I was 11 years old and this was really cool to me. I’ve got to check out more of your stuff.

    Dear rick I’ve remember I read the story ghosts in the machine back in 1985 and now I have the magazine finally I love the story it was great and the ending was how the leader the blue one saw who he was and went crazy and went after the bad guys.
