THE MUCKER - Variant DJ based on J. Allen St. John frontispiece
Original Frontispiece from the
The variant mounted on the Canaveral edition
The original DJ front cover for the
The Mucker - Fantasy-variant DJ for the Canaveral Press edition of 1963. The Canaveral DJ uses a two-color version of the original
St. John art done for the first and all other editions published in ERB's lifetime. The original St. John art is delightful, one of his best,
but the Canaveral adaptation is a poor substitute, and I've never cared for it. So, I've developed a variant based on the St. John B&W
illustration done for the frontispiece of the first edition. To create the illusion of color, using the computer, I infused transparent
hues, building layer by layer halting only when I felt tone and value were correct, giving the finished illustration a water-color look
that I find esthetically pleasing. I hope you do too.
