DC/Vertigo is doing a new, deluxe edition of ORBITER and OCEAN, two graphic novels by Warren Ellis. I did the art for ORBITER. It’s had a few printings, but been out of print for about two years. This new edition will include some of my previously unpublished sketches including this cover prelim. Of course, most of the doodles are not half so elaborate as this, and I don’t think I kept copies of all my prelims. Who knew there’d be all these Deluxes and Absolutes and all that stuff 15 years later? Well, I didn’t.
