Pulp-Style Story Art for Crimson Streets Magazine
Posted 6 years ago and submitted by Roger Betka | Share link: http://illo.cc/68346

This is the second Illustration I have created for Crimson Streets Magazine for their fiction anthology collection. My illustration accompanied the stories “Amnesty” and “Clemency”, both written by Chantal Boudreau. Both stories are a two-part sci-fi drama of Amnesty, the heroine vigilante who goes around defending and bringing justice to abused women, the homeless, elderly and other defenseless victims of abuse.

This story is a great read and is a clever take on the super-hero genre while discussing the difficult issue of domestic violence. The story is viewable on the website and will also be part of a printed hard copy anthology with my illustration on the cover! While working on this I got a chance to explore using gouache and digital painting to produce a Pulp Art look to the finished piece. It was definitely a labor of love and glad for the opportunity of creative freedom with this project.

"I would like to give a shout out to Roger Betka, he just finish my band's EP artwork, and he went above and beyond. He was always punctual about responding, and very easy to talk to. He even gave it to me before the deadline. 5 stars easily. Would highly recommend."
