Amber fan zine cover

Back in the 1970s and 1980s the swashbuckling fantasy tales of Roger Zelazny were quite popular at least in the USA. They were the stories of a prolific royal family who could wander through different dimensions where reality changed as you looked at it. The different realities or universes were all considered the "shadows" of a One True Reality which is where the royal palaces were established, on the peak of a mountain in a city called "Amber." I did a lot of fan art and private commissions done from the world of Amber and this is one of them. It shows the main character, Corwin, walking the magical labyrinth known as the "Pattern," from which all other reality designs emanate. This image was the cover of a fan magazine. I also did some interior illustrations for that zine. 

Black ink and plastic pre-applied "Zip-a-tone" on illustration board, 7 1/2" x 10", spring 1983.
