PELLUCIDAR - Variant DJ. This was the second variant I designed for the Canaveral
Pellucidar series. I have never cared for the DJs as released by Canaveral in their early
publishing history. It's not until after they hire Richard Lupoff to edit the books do they
finally begin to do quality work. The pre-Lupoff Canaveral editions used a very good
illustrator, Mahlon Blaine, but whose stylistic impressions were simply ill suited to
Burroughs' adventure-fantasies. So I decided to do something I felt to be more
To create the illusion of color in the J. Allen St. John two-color illustration used as the
frontispiece in the McClurg edition (see above left), I used Photoshop to layer the
transparent hues, halting only when I felt tone and value were correct, giving the
finished illustration a water-color look that I find esthetically pleasing. I did not care for
the spine design; so I reworked it and replaced the back cover with an essay describing
Pellucidar. I found the end result satisfying, and I hope you like it, too.
