When I started sketching this cover, I wanted an eyesore–something that screamed amateur. It’s not quite as bad as I intended because I couldn’t make myself use Comic Sans. My eyeballs got in the way, but the jagged edges on the target add a little something.
Next week, I’ll begin posting The Invader’s Guide to Earth by Nrrlian Imperial Observer Merl–his human name, not his real name. (He says his real name’s pronounced like Rastafarian with Ms for the Rs and Ls for the As, or maybe it’s Ts for the As. Whatever…My poor human tongue can’t pronounce it.)
It’s experimental science fiction, satire, and at times just plain bizarre. (I still don’t understand why Merl thought his bosses needed to know about bride’s maids and butt bows. Apparently, his bosses didn’t either.)
