The original was drawn in pen and ink on 11×14 inch Bristol Board, I did the coloring with my 4-year old Adesso drawing tablet so as to preserve the pen and ink original.
The Black and White version is the Cover for Gatehouse Gazette #14, my third cover for them.
I am making only 20 of these full-sized giclees. Total size with 1? border is about 13×16 inches. They are printed on cotton-weave fine art rag paper in archival pigment inks for the sort of superior clarity and color quality expected from a giclee print.
The giclees are available at a reduced price of $55, HERE
8×10 inch metallic prints are also available, and also at a reduced price ($15), HERE.
Cover art for Gatehouse Gazette 10, my second cover for the popular Dieselpunk magazine.
Issue 10 will be released less than a day from the time of this posting, and can be found at ottens.co.uk.

I put it up for sale on Etsy, but I’ll likely pull it down if it doesn’t sell in the next day or so and paint it up with some acrylics for an upcoming show. If you would like to buy this piece, or would like to see what Bethalynne Bajema and I have for sale there, please go to Ettadiem.Etsy.com
Still, these are not as impressive or elegant as the airborne aircraft carriers of history, such as the USS Macon or her sister ship the USS Akron, which, sadly, crashed off the coast of New Jersey on April 4th 1933, killing 73 crew and passengers.
