This is an original cover painting for the military adventure novel by Mike Bond published by Headline, 1993. This is another example of a rarely found type of illustration called an "ambiguous image" - reversible figures that exploit our ability to interpret visual cues in two or more distinct way, allowing us to flip back and forth between two separate and clearly different image forms. And it's perfect for capturing the mood of "adventure, deceit and violence" that describes this book. It's an amazing image in acrylic on illustration board, 15.5" x 10" signed.
