About the design
on August 10, 2005
This was originally to be my submission to the Eisley contest, but it was only half done at the deadline. I finished it and thought I might as well submit it to the general contest.
I do have to note my original idea started from an illustration by one of my favorite illustrators, Rafal Oblinksi. The image is from <a href=\"http://www.poster.com.pl/olbinski/arts-club.jpg\">a poster for the National Arts Club</a> a few years ago. A quick nod to shimala for okaying my using his pic in the submission, too.
