I did this illustration for a magazine cover in 1995. The magazine was VISUAL BASIC TECH, a mag for users of a program called, uh, "Visual Basic," the nature of which completely escapes me. However the mag, knowing its readership, also published science fiction. This illustration, called "Exit to Earth," was done for a story by Jerry Oltion. The story involved road rage and bad drivers in heavy traffic at an interstellar gateway to Earth. There was also some campy humor and wilderness adventure. I don't remember much, it was a long time ago. The little red sports spaceship in front, is driven by the hero and his girlfriend, and they are stuck behind a large, ungainly space RV filled with space rednecks. It was published in early 1995, perhaps February.
"Exit to Earth" is acrylic on illustration board, 11" x 15", January 1995. This picture was rescued from a wretched slide, thanks to the magic of Photoshop.
