Lately this foray back into the “Planet of the Apes” has taken me on an art adventure I’ll never forget. The most recent adventure was the honor of creating the cover art for the fall issue of Simian Scrolls #15. This being the 40th Anniversary of the original film, I recreated elements from the famous ending and composed a digital painting.
Here’s what it looks like without the text:
I cropped in a bit here. Turns out many of my colleagues like how Dr. Zaius was rendered the most.
Another exciting aspect of connecting with the Simian Scrolls folks is that Dan Morgan and I have been asked if we would contribute to the winter issue in some interior pages and talk about our Cornelius make up.
Other “Scrolls” covers can be seen and you can download past issues of the fanzine here.
