LeChuck Unexploited


Here's another unused cover idea for Monkey Island 2 LeChuck's Revenge. It's the second of three. I sold the first on ebay a month or so ago and I still owe you a photo of the unique item I bought with some of the cash. This painting is also one of the images that appear in my INTERVIEW at Alternative Magazine Online.

Wow! That's really sweet!

This looks even more scary than the other one. Really nice art. Are you going to put this on ebay for Europeans only?^^

I do like the final cover more because it's so distinct whereas this looks more like a cover to a pulp horror comic. It's still great, don't get me wrong, but the composition and how the characters look is so amazing on what we all saw.

I think you'll be interested to know that, to introduce my students the concept of dialogue, I had them read a passage from "Bad Day on the Moon" (specifically the exchange after they first get out of the DeSoto). A couple of them thought Sam was Max's dad.

Thank you Steve for sharing these pieces with all of us before you sell them!

Great painting.

I love that folks are giving you exposure, but it annoys me that essentially the same questions have been asked over the 15 years I've been following and collecting your work. None of us fans have really gotten anything truly substantial about the man behind the art.

I'm starting an online art related publication and would love to change that with a feature on you. I used to email you years ago at a hotmail address, but am not sure if that still exists. Could you send me a contact, Steve?
