This design was originally intended to be a part of the failed 'art direct' each other theme. I paired with Sweet n Sour, and was to interpret his 666 Degrees Celsius submission. But this never happened, and with 60% of the artwork done, I decided to finish the piece off. I added some new content to take it further away from James's original sub and make it more my own.

Inspired by 80's Black Light posters and Heavy Metal magazine, I inked up the final artwork. But it needed more...some sort of trippy colour sense and background, so I called on Speedy Joe's crazy brilliance. He sent me back an awesome background and a vivid palette of flat colours. I in turn spun these on their head and added some highlights and shadows, and so here we have it.

6 colours on Black, i hope you all like it. And, as always, thanks to Phil Tseng for the presentation magic.

I have always been drawn to the phosphorescent glow of the properly lit blacklight poster like a stoned moth to a flame, and I can practically hear the Sabbath blasting away in the college dorm room where this is front and center.
