These are three of my favorite pages from THE ART OF WAR, the graphic novel I created with Michael DeWeese from 2006 – 2012 that was recently published by HarperCollins in the United States and by Best Seller in Brazil.
- The first image depicts the aftermath of an industrial black hole which implodes part of Mumbai – the story takes place about 20 years in the future when miniature black holes are used for mining and waste removal and other industrial purposes.
- The second image depicts the hand of a man who has been genetically engineered to grow antenna on his flesh so he can communicate with the ant kingdom – another technological advance of the coming decades, used to derive new mathematical algorithms and to control insects for agricultural purposes.
- The third image depicts a prostitute character applying lipstick in a scene involving the story’s protagonist. We went for a “erotic propaganda” type approach here.
