Don Ivan Punchatz - Gods of Riverworld (cover fragment)
edit - Thanks Ben Catmull and the other Monster Brains viewer for providing the background information on this insane artwork!

Weird, this artist apparently designed the Doom videogame logo.

This is a cover design for the book "Gods of Riverworld" by Philip Jose Farmer. Other covers, and this one, can be seen here: http://www.xs4all.nl/~rnuninga/NovCol/NCgor.htm

Whaoh! When I was a kid I bought this book for my dad for his birthday purely based on the cover. It was called something like "The Gods of Riverworld". I never read it, though

Ah, thanks for the info! Now I'm going to have to hunt down a full sized image of that cover.

My Dad, who painted the cover died a few weeks ago. I am going to miss that man...This was one of my favorite works
