BRADBURY WEIRD TALES by Hartman by sideshowmonkey BRADBURY WEIRD TALES by Hartman by sideshowmonkey
This is a piece I did for WEIRD TALES MAGAZINE in honor of the passing of Ray Bradbury. I tried to make this simialr as my Lovecraft piece where the author is surrounded by his many creations. In this piece though I also wanted to get the feel of Bradbury's messy office that I would always see in the main titles of "Ray Bradbury presents".

See if you can find what items relate to what book title he wrote.

I was very sad when Mr. Bradbury passed on. His books were some of my favorite and really introduced me to a broader perspective on literature. I will never forget Fahrenheit 451.

Yea, same here. He had so many good stories I wouldn't know what to say was my favorite.

Yeah, but the reason I say Fahrenheit 451 is because it left me with an incredibly vivid image of what the society in the book was like.
The movie made in the 60s about it doesn't really compare to the mental images I've had in my brain of it.
Maybe one day I can try to remake them..

I'm going to have to add that to my personal art project list for once I get done with commissions.

I have you to thank for that inspiration with this image.

The boot with the butterfly is a nice touch. Shamefully, I didn't even notice the lighthouse on first look (I was busy looking at EVERYTHING ELSE), but The Fog Horn remains one of the most haunting, lonely, and lovely of his stories and certainly one of my very favorites. This is just an awesome illustration. Obviously, you can't fit the man's entire career on one page (he certainly didn't), but this is an excellent cross section of some of his most beloved works.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look at it and indentify so many of the references. There are so many more that could be added. May have to do another piece in the future.

Thanks again!
