25 Years Ago

Tor Books: Celestial Matters

Celestial Matters

Another cover for Tor Books. I recall this as the third I had done for them, but the files are dated after a bunch of others. According to modification dates this is from January 1996.

As usual, the painting was provided and I added the orbital lines and typography. Then (trying to remember 25 years ago) I believe I had to extend much of the clouds and motion blurs to fill the cover out. It is a pretty cover and one of the few times I created something SciFi that included so much white space.

It was also the first time I tried to do something with a mostly empty back cover. Usually the client provides quotes and reviews. There was only one for this title.
