Anarchaos: Take one

Back in abt 2004 writer Charles Santino approached me about collaborating with my friend legendary comic artist Joe Staton to develop an adaptation of the novel "Anarchaos." The novel is a classic SF paperback written under a pen name by the late great Donald Westlake- Joe did rough layouts for this version with a different take on the main character, Charlie and I redesigned him and I created these painted pages. The cover painting was inspired by a sketch Joe did with the character facing away- it was actually a lot cooler that way but a hard sell to publishers. This cover remained attached to the series proposal but we ended up scrapping this version of the comic pages.
