This week over at Whitechapel, Warren Ellis gave us the task to come up with a cover redesign for ZAP COMIX #1, the famous 1960s counterculture comics magazine launched by Crumb, Spain and many other underground icons.
I recently discovered the work of Eduardo Recife, who makes some very interesting collages using old artwork... this is a sort of attempt to drink from the same souce of inspiration.
The tiny man in the cover is Nikola Tesla, the big painting at the bottom is a fragment of "Jupiter and Thetis" by Ingres. The wallpaper is a Victorian pattern I found online. The coil is from a Tesla invention (the alternator, perhaps? - not sure).
Hope you like.
