BOX=ART review

>Stryx

Box art by Peter Andrew Jones

English artwork, first published by Psygnosis/ Psyclapse in 1990.

Designed for the European and American markets. Atari ST version pictured.  

Also available on: Amiga


Another classic art work from one of Europe’s master sci-fi painters.


Peter Andrew Jone’s Stryx would carry on the Psygnosis/ Psyclapse tradition of using already completed artsworks and re-commissioning them.  Originally created in 1970, Stryx was classic sci-fi pulp complete with diabolic robot and death rays: something straight out of 50’s cinema.  


As with many of Peter’s earlier box arts, such as Laser Zone, Blood Money and Alien Legion, they originally found life on the cover of a 70’s novel.  So far Stryx can not be found published elsewhere but it is highly unlikely it went unused.


The lettering is most definitely by Roger Dean who would be responsible for many of Psygnosis’ title designs as well as the classic Shadow of the Beast box arts.
