Cover Art Afterbirth

Every week the Mercury busts its' balls hiring radical illustrators to make art that makes your crappy week a wee bit brighter. Then you wipe your ass with the fully-illustrated Mercury and never look back.
That's why it's so shocking when readers send us emails asking, "Can I buy that illustration you guys ran last week?" I always reply, "Get in line, loser." Usually its people asking about the taco cart illustration by Wilder Schmaltz.
So I thought you might want to know that the original cover art for the very first Mercury ever published showed up in an art show this month at Grass Hut. It's by Martin Ontiveros, he's done a couple covers for us, but this one was the first.
Enjoy!
