Artwork Accepted for Fall 2015 SPACEPORTS & SPIDERSILK

My artwork "Monster in the Ruin" has been accepted for use as cover-at on an issue of Spaceports & Spidersilk. The editor and I agree that it's really a fall cover, so it's going to be used on the Fall 2015 issue. Now to see if I can come up with something for the spring issue...

BTW, this means that, even though I've cut way back on the work I do for publications, the publication roll will roll on into 2015. I already have something slated for fall 2015!
