Murky Depths illustration: So this is Mi

Artwork details: gouache, 10.8 x 8.4 inches (27 x 21 cm), 2008.

I don't often do illustrations, but this one was fun! This painting was done as an illustration for a short story in 'Murky Depths' issue number 5 (summer / autumn 2008). Of the magazine, I can do no better than to pinch the description from their own site:

Murky Depths is a quarterly anthology with a difference. It features top quality speculative fiction with sprinklings of horror and fantasy that push the boundaries of science fiction. Each story is complimented with its own unique artwork. Alongside the straight prose stories are cutting edge graphic strips. Articles across the genres and mixed disciplines add authority, humour and maybe a little controversy. Can you afford to pass on this?

Wouldn't want to spoil the story by saying anything here, but you can go to the Murky Depths website to buy a copy and see for yourself... Nicely bound 80-odd pages which I haven't as yet had a chance to peruse... (the illustration is printed in black and white, incidentally, but if you're interested in a colour print I have them available)
