Science Fiction, Raygun Gothic

Bubbleheaded Space Woman by Mel Anastasiou

I had a great time searching out elements for Raygun Gothic, the title page for Issue 3 of Pulp Literature. I drew this picture while I was developing that title page (which led me to Streamline Moderne for Issue 4, the ideal style for a Noir Detective fellow). This space woman arises from elements I discovered among Forties-era Science Fiction covers. I would like one of these sweet rockets: they go like stink and handle beautifully.
melstepsNote from Mel: At Pulp Literature, we’re Kickstarting our Year Two Subscriptions. Here’s a link to the page for Pulp Lit. I love being part of editing and illustrating this well-regarded short fiction magazine. (BTW the grander, final Raygun Gothic Title Page can be found in Issue 3, and back issues are available.) Thanks for considering subscribing to Year 2, issues 5 through 8, of Pulp Literature!
