Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

After having the privilege to illustrate Larry's article about Dieselpunk culture on Wikipedia, I have been lucky enough to be asked by Hayen to design a cover illustration for his Dieselpunk novel "Drunk on Diesel" he is working about. Wow...

Hope the picture will make you feel the way I do : tingling with excitement to read Hayen's great novel !

Cool tease there, Hayen. I'm really looking forward to the novel.

"E. Chestnut Street was just outside of Chicago, close to the Outer Harbor. In the distance you could hear a distant buzz, and a huge set of skyscrapers elevating themselves to the sky. There was a slow steady rising fog of burnt petrol, not of the city being on fire, but as if it were the tip of a cigarette on the mouth of an industrialist."

Sound/look familiar xD?

Man, I know I say this again and again but it's so true. You have a real talent.

This cover would make me buy this book so fast even if I didn't know who wrote it. The art simply screams hardboiled noir and mystery. Love it.

I love it.

The tones are excellent, and I love the blurred effect you used on the background skyline. It gives it a dreamy feel, but it also expresses a steam/smoke rising from the city.

As a whole piece, it works. It has a noir feel, but there are enough little details layered in that it becomes dieselpunk. Great work, Stefan!
