EDIT* Fixed the misspelling of the word electrocute. previously missed a letter. somehow it took this long for it to be noticed.

Hey, it happens. Curious how no one saw that... :)

Anyway, I'll keep an eye on you; maybe you'll also make the cover for the Big Book of Science next? 'Cause that would be even more awesome. Cheers!

it covers a book size already listed. I can get you the name and printing date of the one it was designed for though. it was after all about ussr ac developments I believe.

Any idea why I can see your big boss cigarettes when I search them but not when I look in your folders?

it's under scrapbook. scrapbook stuff only shows up in the scrapbook. it was designed by another fellow but the font is wrong. looks mighty close though. working on finding the right font though.

14.99 seems a bit steep for 1940's era fallout pre-war prices, dont'cha think?
Reply

emptysamurai Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012  Professional Artist
no, I don't. pre-war inflation was through the roof (see the wiki for the resource wars also check the price on giddyup buttercup)

also not a 1940's era book. think about the fallout timeline. The great war was in 2077, this would have been published in the 21st century more than likely.

besides, check out the price and thickness of the tau of jeet kun do, it's very similar in thickness AND price.

... My work was in nuka break. Not like nuka break though. they are comical and tongue in cheek, This is an action flick in the works for years now. but yes it is a fan film.

Would the 1940s have Barcodes?

Nope, that wasn't invented until 1974.

Keep in mind it was a Retro styled future. It's 2161 with a kind of 1940 throwback feel.

So bar codes and high prices are very likely.

Wait, Nikola Tesla was a major hand in the promotion of alternating current, not direct current, right?
