|Covers for POD 22: David Freitag made an offhanded joke about Trotsky immigrating from Russia and ending up doing movies in America - and of course, he had to do these with the Marx Brothers. So, strange person that I am, I took it and ran with it, ending up with an "Obituary Notice" for his death, and the movie poster for an AH Cocoanuts that also had him in it.
Of course, as Craig Neumeier pointed out, it's unlikely Trotsky would be going by his pseudonym "Trotsky" - which he picked for his political work after the supposed POD here. But if I called him anything else, it wouldn't be as funny (or identifiable, for that matter). "Bronstein and the Marx Bros." just doesn't have the same amusement level as "Trotsky and the Marx Bros."
|Graphics for POD 23: I was working on some covers for 23 that, due to one thing or another, didn't end up being used till 24 (see below). As part of that, I did some graphics for their creation that I scattered through my zine.
Basically, this is set in "TrolleyWorld" and covers their first flight (via dirigble) to the North Pole, in 1922. When you look at the covers for 24, you'll see where these images got used.
|Covers for POD 24: These are the covers that were created from the graphics shown for 23, above. Used Bryce 3D to create them. I rather like the "desktop" for section one, the "picture on the wall" for section two not so much.||Cover for POD 25: Another TrolleyWorld set cover, this one at an airship field. Got kinda creative, and stuck all the "issue information" on the newspaper sitting in the rack. Ian Moore commented that "This looks really trippy with 3D glasses" - and by gum, it does!|
|Cover for POD 27: This one is this is set in my Lowe Airship TL. I'm assuming here WWI carrier-airships, whose primary mission is Naval scouting. This depicts the first battle between "carriers" in which the main ships never see each other - something that had to wait for WWII on OTL!
The text portion has been reformated and slightly rewritten from what appeared on the cover - but I don't suppose that'll be a problem...
|Graphics for POD 20: There was an "Editor's Divergence" assignment for POD 20 on the affects of Lenin not returning to Russia. Not having enough knowlege of the period to make any sort of reasonable guess at the results of this from any sort of broad aspect, I narrowed my sights, and did the following for my zine.|
|Cover for POD 29:
This was just me having fun. It's a postcard supposedly commerating the 100th anniversary of the "Cross-Channel Bridge," connecting England and France. It was kinda inspired by an image I saw in League of Extraordinary Gentleman. Kinda...
|Covers for POD 30: |
There was an "Editor's Assignment" for POD 30 - "Four People Who Never Were" - basically, doing something on four people who "never were" (died early or just aren't really heard of counted).
'Course, I could only come up with three of them - so made them covers for the three sections of POD instead.
This one covers the life of "William Sage," who OTL died on the Titanic but who survived here an ended up beating Lindberg to the crossing of the Atlantic.
The Section two cover has Joseph P. Widney actually getting his proposal to divert the Colorado into the Salton Sink through Congress.
|Covers for POD 30:
Meanwhile, Section three's has Florence Hutchings not get killed by a rock fall at seventeen and go on to lead a campaign that preserves Tulare Lake in California.
I did a "plaque" memorializing Flo that ended up in one of the pictures for Cover three, but at that size it wasn't readable, so I did a backcover for Section three where it was.
|Covers for POD 32:
So, there I was looking for maps to use for a project (the "Lake Cahuilla" timeline), when I came across these two topo maps of L.A. from 1900 (actually, 1900 on the left, 1902 on the right) - which I then promptly stuck together into one map...
...and looking at it, realized that the curve of the Hollywood Hills made for a nice outline of an impact crater.
So I sank Los Angeles...
|Covers for POD 32:
For Section Three I decided to show the "geological" history of the Bay of Los Angeles, covering it from the Ice Age impact to the modern day. Hopefully, this explains the POD of this divergence!
|Covers for POD 34:
These are covers I did with Luke Schleusener based on his "Ut Veniant Omnes" timeline. They were originally meant for POD 33, but they ended up being used for 34 instead (and a third cover ended up being unneeded and pushed up to POD 35!).
|Covers for POD 35:
The cover for section one was supposed to be the third section one for POD 34 - but then POD 34 had only two sections. So I redid it a bit, then got together with Gerson Lodi-Ribeiro and banged out the cover for section two.
|Covers for POD 37:
I got inspired with the idea for section one - then added a rail map for TrolleyWorld I'd been working on for section two.
|Cover for POD 39:
Yep, I only did one this time - and at the last moment too. What we have here are books from some pretty strange realities...
|Cover for POD 43:
Originally meant to be Section Two for POD 42, it was inspired by Anthony Docimo. Of course, Section Two is now Section One of an entirely different zine...and Section One hasn't been used yet, but...
|BaCover for my POD43 Zine:
In spite of POD 43 ending up needing only one cover, I did a third that was the back page of my zine
|Cover for POD44|
The Revival POD!
|Cover for POD47:
Section One was inspired by a comment Robert Alley made to Dale Cozort in POD 41. I was reading along through Robert's zine and that part of it just called to me...;)
|Cover for POD49:
A strange one that had it's origins in an off-hand comment I made about the island in Swiss Family Robinson...
