Prehistoric Passion from Mars, at Amazon

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

The short dinosaur erotica story  for which I recently illustrated the cover is now available on Amazon. Prehistoric Passion from Mars is not for everyone, by all means. It is likely to be pretty disturbing for most people, actually. Still, if curiosity gets the better of you, the book can be purchased for $2.99 here. I encourage people to go to Amazon and write a review. Even if you don’t buy or read it, just write a review for the cover.




PG-13 Version of Dinosaur Erotica Cover

OK, so here’s a slightly less racy version of the illustration I posted yesterday. Maybe a bit less areola will get it passed censors. I bet it will still make my mom cry…





Another Dinosaur Erotica Illustration

Sunday, June 1st, 2014

A few months ago I did an unsolicited illustration for a very specific genre of fiction in attempt to get the attention of the authors. No e-mails came and no commissions. I decided the only way to get myself out there was to write my own story and do the cover for it. The story is in the editing stages at the moment, but I just finished the cover. Here it is:


and here’s a detail:


The figure and the dinosaur are a little looser and less detailed, but the composition is a little bit more developed since I’m working for a specific story. Without mentioning the title or plot, what does this cover reveal?

Dino Erotica

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

Recently, I was introduced to a certain sub-genre of literature known as Dinosaur Erotica. Not being much of a reader, I confess I tend to judge books by their covers. After seeing some examples online, I have to say, I wasn’t too impressed with the effort made by these designers and illustrators. The people and the animals aren’t interacting and there doesn’t seem to have been much thought given to composition. I’m not sure exactly who the target audience is for this type of fiction, but I got the idea that a stylized illustration parodying old romance novel covers could add a sense of irony that might draw readers who wouldn’t otherwise have any interest in this type of thing. Here is my first crack at it:


I decided to go with a classic dinosaur style with dragon scales instead of the more bird-like appearance of modern dinosaur depictions. I thought this gave the illustration a sense of romance that might have been missing in a more realistic approach. I have to admit, that I secretly hope this will lead to some freelance work. I will be contacting some of these Dino Erotica authors soon…
