The Other Gumshoe Drops

Below is our cover for The Robert E. Howard Foundation's forthcoming collection, Steve Harrison's Casebook. This is the companion volume to Tales of Weird Menace — whose cover appears in our previous post. Since together these two books collect all of REH's weird menace/yellow peril stories — subjects that are probably most comfortable in their own era — we decided to create a lurid pulp-style cover for the first volume, and a pseudo paperback-style cover for this one. The original is painted 11¾ × 18", in oil on an Ampersand Hardbord panel.

Thanks for all of your great feedback on our last cover!
