Lovecraft Jack and The Beanstalk by Ellis Goodson
Something very different and fairly self-explanatory via the title.
The piece, "Lovecraft Jack and The Beanstalk" is by Ellis Goodson (you can find his website HERE). It underwent a number of edits on the TAG Tuesday Art Group blog HERE.
I wish there were a bigger version of the final edit - which I like best. It has quite a pulp noir novel cover or 70'/80's sci-fi cover feel - I can almost smell the yellowed pages that have been hidden in the back shelves of an old used bookstore somewhere. :)
You can see more details in the other edits at the TAG blog link if you're interested.
Apparently he intends to re-do the idea with a whole different art direction at some point. I'd be curious to see that too, though it's been a while since this was posted and I can't find any update.
