Vintage Ads From the Science Fictional Future

This is pretty cool: science fiction author Mark A. Rayner created a contest for people to create a retro/vintage-looking advertisement for a product found in the annals of science fiction. Adapting the artwork from an old BOHM ad from 1947, I created an ad for the CHOAM Corp. from Frank Herbert’s Dune novels. And I came in Second Place! Woo hoo! Here’s a small-sized representation of my entry:

The full-size version can be viewed here.

You can find all three finalist’s work at Mark’s blog here, as well as all of the other entries. It was a great idea for a contest; I hope he does it again!

  1. Congrats again Paul. So Kit has chosen his prize, and that leaves you a choice of:

    -a copy of The Amadeus Net
    or
    -a walk-on role in my next novel.

    What will it be?

  2. Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.

    cheers, Cockle.
