Paciphibian World View

Kethîra Atlas Prototype cover. I've been wanting to do a cover with turtles and elephants and whatnot for many years now, but for some reason I've never understood, they seem to invite dissent, hostility or ridicule. This one was fun because it mixes the classical critters with a distinctly non-classical spherical world that makes you wonder about the ice at the south pole and the freezing point of turtle shells.
