This was one of the most unique commissions I’ve had the pleasure of working on. It’s part of ONE MINUTE LATER, a themed cover re-creation collection by an avid original art collector named Michael Finn. If you are interested in checking out other One Minute Later collections, check out his Gallery at ComicArtFans.com.

As mentioned in posted in an earlier post, I tried my hand at illustrating my own interpretation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs’ vision for the characters, working entirely from his text in Princess of Mars.
