REDGE DEDGE REDEDGEMPTION

Edge Magazine is twenty years old and its marvellous birthday issue is now on sale. It's got twenty different covers by different artists, each depicting a different game! One of which is by me, for the game Red Dead Redemption, and featuring a disembodied, ugly, glowering, beardy man who looks like he might smell a bit and/or shoot you in the knees and/or steal your horse. That's not typically a surefire sales strategy when it comes to magazine covers but luckily there are nineteen much prettier covers, all of which you can preview by laboriously scouring the Edge website.

Happy birthday, Edge! May you continue to cast the beam of your terrifying red-glowing compound eye over gaming culture for a further twenty years.



And here's what the paper version looks like. Wood-imitation flooring not included.
