Here is how the cover looks now- I adjusted the font so it doesn't come on so strong and make the thing look overly "busy"- also you can see how the front and back will look by themselves--- and the whole thing sans type. I wanted to create a whole "Skeleton Crew World" incorporating as many elements from the stories in the book as I could. We see Mrs Todd and her friend riding past the Milkman who is holding The Monkey, with Uncle Otto's Truck coming toward them and Nona hitch-hiking while twisted mice from The Jaunt float in space, the giant monster from The Mist walks by and we see bits and pieces of Gramma, The Raft, and so on.

It was a great pleasure to produce over 50 pieces of art for the upcoming SKELETON CREW deluxe anniversary edition for the good folks at PS Publications in Meddie Olde Inkland! The book is due out in May of 2015- along ways off and yet... next thing you know... Time goes fast. (Hint, if you want to slow time down go to Comic-Con in San Diego and try to get from one of the main hall to the other. You will experience a distortion in time wherein what should take minutes takes hours- something unnatural is going on there, especially where the Star Wars people congregate!)
