Cover Art - O.K. Simon!

 A recent commission for an up and coming musician - OK Simon!

Starting with the final image, why not?

A mid-way in development, the orange fluid was meant to be Brandy, but went wrong and orange... Like Brandy does in space, maybe. Note the Picard approach to hairstyling, we covered this up with a baseball cap which had local significance for the client.
Ending with the concept pic, based on a discussion with the client, who wanted to see a cyborg representation of himself in space, one specific thing required was an open Brandy bottle, and the contents emptying uselessly into the void, I thought it would be fun if the fluid formed the cover title.  On review, my client suggested that he'd like to see tank tracks rather than legs, to up the surrealism.  While working on the model I decided it was a combat cyborg accidentally ejected from its orbiting deployment platform...;)
