Illustration Friday: Fast

Antarctic Express illustration by Christina Rodriguez.

Just in time for the spooky Halloween season, here is my submission for this week’s Illustration Friday. The image comes from one of my newest book releases, The Antarctic Express, and depicts the climactic scene where the two main characters flee from the ancient being that has quickly descended upon them.

The Antarctic Express is actually a retelling of H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness, done as a parody of Chris Van Allsburg’s The Polar Express. You can read more about it at the Atlas Games website.
