This painting was cover art for The Butcher's Bill by David Drake (Baen Books, 1998), part of the author's Hammer's Slammers series.

After reading the stories I started sketching, knowing I wanted a sense of the speed and power of the tanks and cars Drake writes about.  The stories are gritty and dirty, so I really wanted the whole scene to show that as well. 

Butcher's Bill (oil on canvas, 24" x 36") was my first cover for a science-fiction book
