Amazing Clones

I did this one for "Amazing Stories" magazine as an interior illustration. It was my second assignment for them. It was a pulp-style image with room for the title at top. The story involved a clone detective who had 4 identical bodies but one mind between them. He had to solve a murder committed in a theatrical company in which the actors were also clones. You can see a fight scene from "Hamlet" in the lower right area. It turned out that the "dame" you see in the blue garb to the left was also a clone though with switched genders, and she had committed the murder of her own clone. Or something like that.
