Above is a cover illustration I recently completed for the St Louis Riverfront Times. The feature story it depicts involves an East St Louis murder involving a white man with a lengthy criminal record who ran down and killed the African American man with his pick-up truck. The culprit hasn’t been charged, and isn’t in jail. Because I like the way the illustration turned out, I plan to use it as the cover for HAPPY HOUR IN AMERICA #3, which I’m currently putting together. More details about that later. The concept was influenced by one of my favorite EC Comics SHOCK SUSPENSTORIES covers from the 1950’s, illustrated by Wally Wood. See below:

    I saw this issue sitting next to the RFT from the week before and immediately realized how much more awesome your illustration was (no offense to the other artist or anything).
    Only thing is, if it’s a reflection, shouldn’t “HOT GIRLS! COLD BEER!” be reversed?
