I had so much fun making these. They're all existing pulp novel covers with real titles and taglines; I just changed the art. Torchwood + pulp seems a foregone conclusion, to me. Before I started I had just intended to be clever with using relevant titles, but after just the first (I, Robot) I realised that they had the potential not just to make a clever reference, but make a whole new story. I mean, yes, I have done art analysis up the wazoo, so I knew this already, but I am so delighted at how much can be construed from such a simple set of words and visual tropes.

In summary: I am totally making more fanart. I adore it.

You are such a weirdo. In a good way.

Or just in a scary way.

The are so cool! It's hard to pick a favourite. I love the coffee rings on Shameless Game, especially, but I do think Hart-the-Robot is awesome.

May I download and incorporate into altered art for friends? Or shall I just admire from a distance? Either is good.

I love them all, 'cause I love pulp and science fiction novels, and of curse, Torchwood. You have a great talent.

Hugs from México City!

I love these. I've always thought Torchwood and pulp was a match made in heaven.

Here via your self-rec post, and WOW. These are amazing. In particular, the I, Robot cover gives me chills; what a fantastic counterpoint to Asimov's three laws. Just brilliant.

I absolutely love these! Especially The X-Machine. The art for that one is so striking. Thank you for self-reccing so I could have a chance to see them!
