Try Ubik - New and powerful by martinacecilia Try Ubik - New and powerful by martinacecilia
You probably know by now I'm a HUGE sci-fi addicted. XD I re-read Ubik this week and I ABSOLUTELY had to draw regressing advertizing of Ubik. Had so much fun! (mostly because Dick's texts are wonderfully ironic and all the situation is so creative!)

I used TONS of references in this, mostly vintage ads of Coca-cola.

Mangastudio+photoshop+my textures.

Neat adverts and art. I am currently reading the UBIK book so I get plenty of what these are about.

This is so great, I just finished reading the book and this is mostly how I imagined the ads to be.

LOL @ "The floors of my conapt were sagging"

Very nice work and a perfect homage to PKD. Appearing in tomorrow's homeopape maybe? ;-)

It's great to see someone who recognizes the influence and keen sense of humor/ intellect (paranoiac wondering over who's really dead, post-mortem shilling, and a sort of gnostic Dualism between Ruciter, the compassionate boss of Joe, and ****, the cruel and childlike demiurge) of (Phillip K.) Dick. Everyone claims that the three legends of Sci-Fi are Clarke, Asimov, and Heinlein. Well, I nominate Dick as the fourth.

:D thanks!
Actually even though I find Clarke Asimov and Heinlein very good my personal preference fall with Philip K. Dick anyway. I can't help it, he reflects my personal preferences in everything! :heart:
