G-Fan #124

G-Fan #124 is now available. G-Fan is a magazine entirely devoted to Godzilla and other kaiju films and projects. For this issue, which was timed to be released with the new movie, Godzilla: King of the Monsters (currently showing at a theater near you), I created a wrap around cover featuring Godzilla, and his four classic Toho co-stars, King Ghidorah, Rodan and Mothra, as they appear in the new film.

This piece was done in 3-D cut paper at actual magazine size. At the time I started it, there was no plot information available, one trailer, and no clear look at any of the monsters beyond a few images of toys that would also be released now. When I finally saw the movie I was surprised to discover that the image I created was actually pretty accurately representative of the movie, right down to being located in Boston (I did take liberties with the skyline for compositional reasons). 

You can obtain a copy at many comic book retail shops, or via the G-Fan website. If you are a fan of Godzilla, I recommend simply subscribing at a very affordable rate.
