Derek Van Gieson covers Eightball 9

Original cover by Dan Clowes; Fantagraphics 1992. Derek Van Gieson's website is here.


  1. Anthony Vukojevich sez:
    Nice job....captures the spirit of the original. Creepy fun.
    I love the George Groszness of ypur work....
    and your website is impressive. Nice color choices and design sense on those posters and paintings of yours.

  2. Derek's stuff reminds me of 60's ink illustrations and maybe people before then like Rene Gruau. I guess Gruau was still going strong in the 60's. Derek's stuff is a little crazier, though.

  3. Its a wierd kind of half-way between Clowes and Ralph Steadman. Cool.

  4. why don't more people talk about Rene Gruau?

  5. WOW both covers are amazing! I love the style and line of the new one! I hope you liked the one Ive send you last week, cheers
