Friday the 13th: Remember the Knights Templar!

It's Friday the 13th! Remember the Knights Templar!

King Philip IV of France ordered the arrest of the Templars in France, including the Templar Grand Master Jacques de Molay, on Friday, October 13th, 1307. Some link this fact with the superstition that Friday the 13th is an unlucky date, though such belief may not have arisen until the 20th century.

Art on Cover of July 2019 SPACEPORTS & SPIDERSILK

My fun sci-fi artwork “Visiting the Pool of the Piptrixons” now appears on the cover of the July 2019 issue of SPACEPORTS & SPIDERSILK. Check it out:

If I counted right, this makes #11 for this particular publication. Since the publisher announced that the July 2019 issue of SPACEPORTS & SPIDERSILK will be the last (at least last published by him), not knowing what the future holds for the zine, this might be my last artwork to appear on a SPACEPORTS & SPIDERSILK cover. Even so, ’twas a good run.

At Least One More Artwork for SPACEPORTS AND SPIDERSILK

The editor of Spaceports and Spidersilk emailed me recently asking if I had any artwork I could send her way for the cover of the July issue. I didn't have any unused artwork available, but I did have something in mind even before the editor emailed me However, I didn't think I would ever get to it. With all the other art projects I have going at the moment, I didn't think I would have the time. Even so, even though I hate juggling several projects at once, I agreed to come up with something. After all, it was better to get the image out of my head and onto paper. 

I put work on my latest work-for-hire illustration project on hold for a few days to work on the artwork for Spaceports and Spidersilk and managed to finish it today. I thin sent it off to the editor, hoping she would like this latest creation as much as she's liked many of my previous contributions.

Well, since the editor adores the cover artwork (yes, she actually said she adores it), and since she has accepted it for the July issue of her zine, it looks like I will have at least one more artwork on a cover of Spaceports and Spidersilk.

So, it looks my fun sci-fi artwork "Visiting the Pool of the Piptrixons" will be appearing on the cover of the July 2019 issue of Spaceports and Spidersilk. That'll make #11.
